A rollover crash left three people hospitalized and caused Washington Street in Gurnee to be shut down for several hours Tuesday while investigators conducted a crash investigation.
The Gurnee Police Department and Gurnee Fire Department responded around 3 p.m. Tuesday to Washington Street and Cemetery Road for a vehicle crash with injuries.
Gurnee Police Department Public Information Officer Shawn Gaylor said officers found a 2004 Subaru rolled over in the grass along the south side of Washington Street west of Cemetery Road.
The Subaru contained three occupants, an 18-year-old male driver, a 22-year-old male passenger, and a 20-year-old female passenger, all of who reside in Gurnee.
The occupants of the vehicle were transported by paramedics to Advocate Condell Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
Investigators with the Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT) responded to the scene and aided with the crash investigation, Gaylor said.
An initial investigation revealed the Subaru and a 2008 Mazda were both traveling westbound on Washington Street.
The driver of the Mazda, a 27-year-old North Chicago man, collided with the rear end of the Subaru, causing the Subaru to veer off the roadway and roll over, Gaylor said.
The driver of the Mazda was not injured during the collision.
Two young children, seated in the back of the Mazda, were secured in child safety seats and were uninjured.
Traffic on Washington Street was blocked and diverted from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. while MCAT conducted the investigation.
The crash remains under investigation by the Gurnee Police Department and MCAT.
