Golf Road (Route 58) near the scene of a fatal head-on crash.

Migdalia Bloch, 62, of Hoffman Estates, was reported dead at the scene in a fiery head-on collision that also killed Joseph Paliokaitis, 32, who was transported to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates, and pronounced dead at 8:11 p.m. A Hyundai, burst into flames in the crash. It is unknown if Migdalia Bloch was a passenger or the driver of the Hyundai. Large pieces of vehicle debris were scattered near the scene on Golf Road about 200 or 300 yards west of the intersection of Golf Road and Bartlett Road.

The crash was located in a sparse area that is near the middle of the Poplar Creek Forest Preserve. The area is sparsely populated with Schaumburg Road and Bode Road bordering the south, the Elgin, Joliet and Eastern Railway purchased by the Canadian National Railway to the west, the Northwest Tollway to the north, and Barrington Road to the east. Golf Road cuts through the middle of the forest preserve as a rural type of highway with only two lanes, except for additional turn lanes at the intersection of Bartlett Road. The speed limit is 55 mph.

The severity of the crash, the remote location of the crash, the report of a fleeing third vehicle involved in the crash, and an intriguing license plate description of the fleeing vehicle (information withheld for the integrity of the investigation), certainly has given Hoffman Estates police investigators a full plate of duties.

Police report that the driver of the Jaguar was ejected during the crash and transported to St. Alexius Medical Center. A woman, apparently Migdalia Bloch, was trapped in a Hyundai, which burst into flames in the crash. The woman was dead at the scene. A blue tarp covered one of the vehicles.

A third person was reported to be injured and transported to St. Alexius Medical Center. There is no confirmation that a third person was transported to the hospital.

There was also a report that a third vehicle involved in the crash fled the scene. Police were searching for a male driver of a 2002 blue Subaru 4-door that was last seen fleeing westbound on Golf Road. The driver was wanted for leaving the scene of a fatal accident. The vehicle and a subject were in police custody about 10:45 pm. Thursday. However, the police have not charged the driver, and the crash is not being investigated as a hit-and-run.

Golf Road was blocked for a prolonged period at Bartlett Road and at Sutton Road (Route 59).

Streamwood police assisted Hoffman Estates police at the crash scene.

Except for the initial investigation of a possible hit-and-run, there is no word of foul play during or prior to the crash. But foul play is certainly something police are working hard to discover or rule out.
