[ARCHIVED] Beach Park Fatal Traffic Crash

On October 10, 2022, at approximately 1:15 p.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to Sheridan Road and West Howard Street, Beach Park, for a traffic crash with injuries.  Sheriff’s deputies arrived and found two vehicles with heavy damage.  

Preliminary investigation shows a Toyota Prius, driven by an adult male (identification pending), was making a left turn from Howard Street onto northbound Sheridan Road.  At the same time an Infiniti M35, driven by a 32-year-old man of Waukegan, was traveling southbound on Sheridan Road, in the same area.  Both vehicles collided in the intersection.

The driver of the Toyota had to be extricated from the vehicle and was subsequently transported to Vista East Medical Center in Waukegan, where he was pronounced deceased.  The driver of the Infiniti was also transported to Vista East Medical Center with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.  

Some witnesses reported the Infiniti was traveling at a high rate of speed and recklessly prior to the crash.

The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigation Team, and they will be working to determine the speed of the Infiniti.
