Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, December 17, 2022 to the 12700 block of West Crescent Avenue in unincorporated Waukegan to a report of a traffic crash with injuries. Sheriff’s deputies arrived and found the driver, a 35-year-old man of North Chicago, ejected from the vehicle. He was identified as D’Andre Moton.
Preliminary investigation shows that Moton was driving a Chevrolet Trailblazer at a high rate of speed eastbound on West Crescent Avenue. Allegedly, as Moton approached Adelphi Avenue, for an unknown reason he crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic and drove into a ditch on the north side of the roadway. The Chevrolet struck a utility pole, before coming to a rest on its side. The driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle. He was located approximately 30 feet from the Chevrolet.
The man was transported to an area hospital in critical condition. Preliminary indications are the man will be paralyzed from the waist down.
Alcohol immediately appeared to have been a factor in the crash.
The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.
