Lake County Sheriff’s deputies and Beach Park firefighter/paramedics responded about 2:00 a.m. Monday May 13, 2019 to a report of a crash in the area of North Sheridan Road and North Ganster Road, Beach Park. Sheriff’s Deputies arrived and located a 2005 Chevrolet Corvette with significant damage.

Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies found a passenger from the Corvette, an unconscious 27-year-old female of Waukegan, on the ground near the car. She suffered critical, life-threatening injuries, and was flown via Flight for Life Helicopter to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.
