A driver was flown by a medical helicopter to a trauma center following a rollover crash Friday evening in Bull Valley, fire officials said.
The Woodstock Fire Rescue District responded around 6:50 p.m. Friday to the 9600 block of West Bull Valley Road in Bull Valley for a report of a rollover crash with entrapment.
Firefighters arrived and found a vehicle that rolled over into the tree line and sustained heavy damage.
The single occupant of the vehicle had self-extricated themselves before firefighters and paramedics arrived.
Paramedics immediately began treating the victim for their injuries and a LifeNet medical helicopter responded and flew the victim to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.
“Although the injuries are not being considered life-threatening, the patient was airlifted to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for precautionary measures,” the Woodstock Fire Rescue District said in a statement.
The McCullom Lake Police Department is investigating the cause of the crash.
The Woodstock Fire Rescue District said that crews responded just 30 minutes prior to the Bull Valley crash to a separate rollover crash nearby.
Firefighters responded to that rollover crash around 6:18 p.m. near Route 120 and Greenwood Road, which is on the edge of Wonder Lake and Woodstock.
A vehicle drove off the roadway and rolled over before striking a tree. The driver of the vehicle self-extricated themselves and declined medical attention.
A passenger in the vehicle required assistance from the vehicle and paramedics transported them to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in McHenry with non-life-threatening injuries, fire officials said.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash. Both Friday evening crashes resulted in road closures of more than 30 minutes each.
