McHenry County Sheriff and Richmond Fire Protection District firefighters responded about 11:58 a.m. Saturday to a report of a crash on Route 12 south of Mackwood Drive. Sheriff’s deputies and firefighter/paramedics received a report of entrapment in a vehicle that was on fire after a crash involving a Jeep Grand Cherokee, a pickup truck and a recreational trailer. The vehicle fire was immediately extinguished by Richmond Fire Protection District firefighters
Sharon L. Ams was pronounced dead at the scene and the McHenry County Coroner was requested immediately after sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene.
Initial investigation of the crash revealed that Sharon Ams was driving a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee westbound on Route 12 when she crossed the center line and sideswiped an eastbound 2002 GMC 2500 Sierra pickup truck and then struck a recreational trailer that was being towed by the pickup truck. The Grand Cherokee and pickup truck came to a stop on Route 12, but the trailer broke loose during the crash and rolled over into a ditch on the south side of Route 12.
Lancaster, South Carolina residents Donald W. McCullough, 75, the driver of the pickup truck, and Sara C. McCullough, 75, were treated at the scene and refused transportation to a hospital.
Route 12 was closed between Route 31 and North Solon Road for about six hours Saturday afternoon during accident scene operations and investigation by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Accident Investigation Unit and the McHenry Count Coroner’s Office.
