A teen girl and male driver were transported to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, where both were pronounced dead.
The 13-year-old girl of Round Lake Beach was initially believed to be a passenger in an orange 2006 Pontiac G6, when the male driver, age 34 of Chicago, lost control while speeding along Long Lake Drive.
