A 57-year-old man is in critical condition after he crashed his motorized bicycle into a stopped car in Wauconda, police said.

The Wauconda Police Department and Wauconda Fire District responded around 12:43 p.m. Thursday to the area of Route 176 and Brown Street for a vehicle crash with injuries.

Officers arrived and found a black four-door Infiniti and a motorized bicycle involved in a crash, according to Wauconda Police Department Public Information Officer Heather Cognac.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the motorized bicycle was traveling westbound on the north sidewalk of Route 176.

As the bicycle approached the intersection of Brown Street, the driver of the bike suddenly attempted to turn right to travel north on Brown Street, according to witnesses.

Cognac said the driver of the bicycle turned too wide and collided with the Infiniti which was stopped southbound at the red light waiting to turn left onto Route 176.

Paramedics transported Carbajal to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville where he remains in critical condition, Cognac said.

The crash remains under investigation by the Wauconda Police Department.
