An 81-year-old Wonder Lake woman was seriously injured in a two-vehicle traffic crash in unincorporated Hebron on Tuesday evening, August 1, 2023.
McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, McHenry County Conservation Police Department, Hebron Police Department, Hebron Alden Greenwood Fire Protection District, Wonder Lake Fire Protection District, and Woodstock Fire Department, responded at 8:17 p.m. Tuesday, August 1, 2023 to a report of a crash involving two vehicles near Thayer Road and Route 47.
An 81 year-old female was transported to Northwestern McHenry Hospital by ambulance before being transferred to Level 1 Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where she was treated for serious injuries. An 18 year-old, and a 17-year-old female passenger, were transported to Northwestern McHenry Hospital with minor injuries, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.
Preliminary investigation indicates that a Toyota Camry, operated by an 18-year-old Woodstock female, was southbound IL Route 47 when a Ford Focus, operated by a 81-year-old female traveling eastbound Thayer Road. The 81 year-old driver of the Ford Focus failed to yield at the intersection and crossed in front of the Toyota, causing a collision.
The investigation is ongoing and is being investigated by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Major Traffic Crash Investigation Unit.
Thayer Road is controlled by 2-way stop signs with warnings that cross traffic does not stop at Route 47. The intersection of Route 47 and Thayer Road may have obscured visibility to the left from trees and brush near the corner along Route 47, which hinder detection of southbound Route 47 traffic.
