Volo, IL (December 25, 2019) – An 82-year-old man from Lake Zurich, Illinois was killed following a three-vehicle collision in Volo, Illinois on Monday night. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office reported that the crash occurred near the crossing of US-12 and Volo Village Road. The Lake Zurich man was reportedly traveling on US-12 SB when he crossed into oncoming traffic, hitting a 2005 Toyota Sedan driven by a man, 20, of Lake in the Hills, Illinois.
The impact caused the Toyota to move into the path of a southbound 2008 Subaru SUV driven by a man, 27, of McHenry, Illinois. The Subaru collided with the Toyota, causing the Lake in the Hills man to be seriously injured and taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center. The driver of the Subaru was uninjured.
No other injuries were reported. Local law enforcement officials are investigating the cause of the accident.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased party at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.
Head-On Crashes in Illinois
Head-on collisions have the potential to result in devastating injuries. These crashes are fairly rare, only accounting for a small number of reported accidents. However, they still account for 10 percent of all reported car crash fatalities each year.
Statistics show that less than half of those involved in a head-on crash will survive. Even at low speeds, these collisions can be catastrophic for those involved. Losing a loved one in such an accident can be unbearable.
