Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies and Wauconda Fire District paramedics responded about 11:45 p.m. Saturday, June 19, 2021 to a report of a vehicle versus pedestrian traffic crash with injuries on Route 120 west of Fisher Road in Wauconda Township. Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located the pedestrian, a 34-year-old man of Grayslake, with life-threatening injuries.
Preliminary investigation shows minutes before the crash the pedestrian exited a vehicle on Route 120 and began walking. As the pedestrian was walking along the shoulder, he entered the roadway in the westbound lanes, where he was struck by a westbound Chevrolet Impala, driven by a 30-year-old man of Unincorporated Round Lake.
Initially, the pedestrian was transported via ambulance to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Unincorporated Barrington, but due to the severity of his injuries, he was then transported to Level 1 Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge via medical helicopter. He currently remains at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in critical condition.
Sheriff’s crash investigators are working to determine if impairment was a factor in the crash and why the pedestrian exited a vehicle on a busy roadway.
The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.
