Traffic Crash with Critical Injuries
Lake County Sheriff’s deputies and firefighters and paramedics from Lake Villa Fire Protection District responded about 5:20 p.m. Friday, November 12, 2021 to a report of a crash with injuries from a crash ejection at Route 59 and Monaville Road in unincorporated Lake Villa.
Lake County Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located a 2001 Ford F250 with major damage. Preliminary investigation shows the Ford was traveling northbound on Route 59 and the driver, a 29-year-old man from Spring Grove, attempted to pass another vehicle. Due to the wet pavement, the driver lost control of the Ford and slid into the traffic standard at the intersection. The driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle.
The driver was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with critical, life-threatening injuries.
It also appears the driver was involved in a separate hit-and-run crash in the area of Route 59 and Wilson Road, Ingleside.
The crashes remain under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.
