Person critically injured in crash with semi near Round Lake

(SUN-TIMES) — Three people were injured, including one critically injured in a crash Thursday afternoon near northwest suburban Round Lake.

Officers were called to the crash about 2 p.m. on Route 120 west of Wilson Road in an unincorporated area near Round Lake, according to the Lake County sheriff’s office.

A 1998 Ford Contour driven east on Route 120 by a 50-year-old Lake Zurich woman drifted into the opposite lane and collided head-on with a 2016 Freightliner semitractor with an empty trailer, the sheriff’s office said.

The woman and her 16-year-old passenger were taken to Condell Medical Center in Libertyville where she was in critical condition and the teenager was in serious condition, the sheriff’s office said.

The 64-year-old driver of the semi-tractor was taken to Centegra Northern Illinois Medical Center in McHenry for treatment of minor injuries, the sheriff’s office said.
