Old Mill Creek Car Versus Semi-Truck Traffic Crash Critically Injures Schaumburg Man


Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies Were Looking for Reckless Driver

Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating an early morning crash that left a 38-year-old man in critical condition.

On June 19, 2023, at approximately 6:20 a.m., sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the intersection of Route 45 and Route 173, Old Mill Creek, for a car versus semi-truck traffic crash with injuries.

The driver of the BMW had to be extricated from the vehicle and was flown via medial helicopter to Advocate Condell Medical Center with life-threatening, critical injuries. The driver of the semi-truck was uninjured.

Preliminary investigation shows the driver of a semi-truck, a 64-year-old man of Round Lake, was traveling northbound on Route 45. The driver of the semi-truck proceeded through the intersection of Route 173 on a green light. As he was proceeding through the intersection, a westbound BMW, driven by a 38-year-old man of Schaumburg, disobeyed the red light and drove directly under the tractor-trailer of the semi-truck. The driver of the BMW appears to have been traveling at a high rate of speed.

Just before the report of the traffic crash, deputies were responding to the same area for a report of a reckless driver, operating a BMW sedan. Further investigation revealed the BMW involved in the crash was the same vehicle called in as being driven recklessly. Alcohol impairment does appear to be a factor for the driver of the BMW.

The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Team.
