A preliminary investigation determined a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado pickup was traveling south on Front Street when it first stuck a 2010 Dodge Ram pickup which had pulled over to yield to the police vehicle. The Chevrolet pickup then struck the police vehicle, a 2013 Ford Interceptor sedan. The police vehicle’s emergency lights and siren had been activated prior to the time of the crash.
The driver of the Chevrolet pickup and the police officer reported minor injuries and were transported to Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital by the McHenry Township Fire Protection District.
