Prospect Heights Fatal Crash Honda Reported Stolen Saturday Morning

Mount Prospect police received a report about 8:20 a.m. Saturday that a 2002 silver Honda was reported stolen sometime overnight from a residential area near Kensington Road and Wheeling Road. No offender information was available during the report. A Mount Prospect police officer immediately compared the license plate information with a silver Honda involved in a fatal crash on Camp McDonald near Maple just after 3:00 a.m. Saturday, and identified the vehicle description as the same vehicle.

Mount Prospect police are investigating.


The 2002 Honda was apparently eastbound on Camp McDonald Road when it was driven off of the roadway and struck a tree at high speed, causing the Honda to split in half. The crash killed two females and one male. A second male was transported to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital.

The ages of the victims were reported to be between 14 and 19.
