[ARCHIVED] Serious Wadsworth Traffic Crash

On November 28, 2022, at approximately 6:30 p.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a single-vehicle traffic crash with injuries in the 39500 block of North Dilleys Road, Wadsworth.  Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located a 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer with significant damage.

Preliminary investigation shows the driver of the Mitsubishi, an 83-year-old man of Gurnee, was traveling northbound on Dilleys Road.  For an unknown reason, the man failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway and drove off the east side of Dilleys Road, striking several trees and a fence.  

The man was transported via ambulance to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville in critical condition.  It is possible the man suffered a medical event prior to the crash.

The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.
