Lake Villa police, Illinois Conservation Police and Lake Villa firefighter/paramedics responded about 11:45 PM Saturday to a report of crash with injuries at Petite Lake Sandbar, Lake Villa, Il. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that two boats crashed on Petite Lake near the Petite Lake Sandbar.

Quad 2 departments was requested to respond with all Quad 2 divers. Lake County Sheriff’s marine unit boat crew advised by midnight that no additional divers or boats would be needed.

BC24 reported Lake County Sheriff’s boat was first reporting unit on the scene. Dispatch reported the Lake County marine unit crew was bringing a patient to the medics on shore, but initially it did not appear that firefighters were aware that the Lake County Sheriff’s boat was involved in the crash.

Later it was reported that Lake County sheriff’s office marine unit deputies were injured late Saturday while patrolling Petite Lake and responding to a noise complaint.

A Lake County Sheriff’s Office marine unit boat assigned to patrol Petite Lake was struck just north of Fox Lake by a 21-foot 1989 Wellcraft fiberglass boat that was driven by a female resident, age 39, from Lindenhurst, according to Lake County Sheriff’s Office Detective Christopher Covelli.

The two deputies aboard the marine unit boat were transported to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Covelli said.

The operator of the Wellcraft boat that collided with the Lake County Sheriff’s marine unit was cited with careless operation and an equipment violation by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Conservation Police, according to Covelli.

The sheriff’s marine boat was one of two units responding to the noise complaint call, Covelli said. According to the Lake County sheriff’s office, the 15-deputy marine unit patrols Lake Michigan and inland waterways along with the Chain O’ Lakes on the Fox River. The sheriff’s office reports that the Chain O’Lakes is the busiest inland recreational waterway per acre in the United States.

Illinois Department of Natural Resources Conservation Police are investigating the accident, according to Covelli.
