A man sustained life-threatening injuries after he was thrown from his motor scooter when a van crashed into him in Lake Zurich Thursday evening.

The Lake Zurich Police Department and Lake Zurich Fire Department responded around 5:26 p.m. Thursday to Buesching Road and Route 22 in Lake Zurich for a report of a serious crash with injuries.

Lake Zurich Police Chief Steve Husak said the incident involved a 2009 Honda van and a 2017 Wolf motor scooter.

A preliminary investigation showed the Honda was traveling northbound in the 0-100 block of Buesching Road.

The Honda attempted to turn left into a private drive when it struck the southbound motor scooter, Husak said.

The motor scooter operator was thrown from the scooter and sustained life-threatening injuries.

The male operator was not wearing a helmet. He was transported by the Lake Zurich Fire Department to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.
