CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Lake County Sheriff’s deputies and Newport firefighter/paramedics responded about 10:15 p.m. Sunday December 16, 2018 to Route 41 (Skokie Highway) and Wadsworth Road, Wadsworth to a crash with injuries involving a semi-trailer truck and car. When Lake County Sheriff’s deputies arrived, they found a car crashed into the rear of semi-truck trailer with major damage and a male vehicle entrapped in the vehicle.

Heavy rescue tow trucks were requested to expedite to the scene, and a rotator crane was used to lift the trailer off of the car, which was severely damage to about the middle of the car.

The driver of the Chrysler was pronounced deceased at the scene. The Lake County Coroner’s Office responded to the scene and an autopsy is scheduled for later today, Monday December 17, 2018.

The driver of the truck was transported by paramedics to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Preliminary investigation shows a 2012 Freightliner Tractor/Trailer, driven by a 46-year-old man from Alger, Ohio, was northbound on Route 41. The driver of the Freightliner was stopped at a red light at Wadsworth Road. When the light turned green for northbound Route 41, the driver of the Freightliner started to accelerate the truck, and was struck in the rear of the trailer by a 2005 Chrysler 300 that was also northbound.

According to a witness, the Chrysler was moving at a high-rate of speed just prior to the crash. A Speed Limit of 55 MPH along northbound US 41 (Skokie Highway) is reduced to 45 MPH about 1,000 feet south of the intersection at Wadsworth Road, according to a Google Street View image captured in July 2018. US 41 (Skokie Highway) is similar to an expressway with a center concrete J-wall barrier, but features regular roadway entrances and exits with reduced speeds near intersections controlled by stoplight. The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.

The identity of the driver of the Chrysler was not initially released by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
