NOV 24 2008 — A one-car accident killed two teens and injured three teens near Cuba Road and Crestview Drive about 8:30 p.m. Monday. The accident scene was near a stretch of road that is commonly driven at high speeds for the thrill of “hilltopping” where the rolling road causes cars to go airborne at the peaks of hills on the road.

Killed were Daniel Vicario, 15, and Lilia C. Bueno, 14, who was ejected from the back seat was pronounced dead at the accident scene.

Long Grove, Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods and Lake Zurich fire departments worked on the extrication of four teens from the wrecked 2007 Chevy Cobalt, which was apparently eastbound on Cuba Road when it left the road and hit a white fence and a group of trees.

Vicario was flown by helicopter to Level One Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where he died.

Martin Solis, 15, Luis Solis, 13, and Yareli Mendoza-Solis, 8 were injured in the crash and were released from Advocate Lutheran General Hospital Wednesday.
