Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies and Antioch firefighters and paramedics responded about 5:30 p.m. Saturday January 9, 2021 to a report of a traffic crash with injuries at Route 45 and Route 173 in Antioch Township. Lake County Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located a rollover traffic crash.
When Lake County sheriff’s deputies arrived, Good Samaritans were conducting CPR on the 57-year-old man. The 57-year-old male of Mundelein, is believed to have been the front seat passenger in the Chevrolet Blazer, and to have been ejected from the Chevy Blazer. He was transported by a paramedic rescue ambulance to Level 1 Trauma Center Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, where he was later pronounced deceased.
The driver of the Chevrolet was transported via paramedic rescue ambulance to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Lexus was uninjured.
Preliminary investigation shows a 1997 Chevrolet Blazer, driven by a 59-year-old man of Mundelein, entered traffic out of the gas station parking lot located on the northwest corner of the intersection Route 173 and Route 45. The driver of the Chevrolet briefly drove westbound on Route 173 and then onto the shoulder on the north side of Route 173. The driver of the Chevrolet then attempted to make a U-turn to travel eastbound on Route 173. As the driver made the U-turn, the Chevrolet was struck by a westbound 1999 Lexus ES 300, driven by 25-year-old male of Buffalo Grove. This caused the Chevrolet Blazer SUV to roll, and the passenger in the Chevy Blazer to be ejected.
The Lake County Coroner’s Office responded and an autopsy is being scheduled for the passenger of the Chevrolet.
The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.
