[ARCHIVED] Serious Unincorporated Gurnee Traffic Crash

On May 5, 2023, at approximately 11:00 a.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to Route 41 and Stearns School Road, Unincorporated Gurnee, for a traffic crash with injuries.  Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located three vehicles with heavy damage.

Preliminary investigation shows a 2019 Ford F150, driven by a 77-year-old man of Lindenhurst, was traveling southbound on Route 41 approaching Stearns School Road.  As the Ford drove through the intersection, a northbound 2012 Ford Focus, driven by a 19-year-old female of Zion, made a left turn onto Stearns School Road, directly in front of the F150.  The F150 ‘T-Boned’ the Focus.  This caused the Focus to strike a 2010 Honda Pilot, driven by a 42-year-old woman of North Chicago, which was stopped, facing eastbound, on Stearns School Road, just west of Route 41.  

The driver of the Focus was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with critical injuries.  The driver of the F150 was transported to Vista East Medical Center in Waukegan with minor injuries.  The driver of the Honda was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center with minor injuries.

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