A 63-year-old man riding in the passenger seat of a medical transport van was killed after the van was t-boned by an SUV in unincorporated Harvard on Friday, police said.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office said they received a call around 11:45 a.m. Friday for a two-vehicle crash with injuries and entrapment at Alden Road and O’Brien Road in Alden Township near Harvard.
The Woodstock Fire Rescue District, Harvard Fire Protection District and Wonder Lake Fire Protection District were also called.
McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Aimee Knop said a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan was traveling westbound on O’Brien Road approaching a stop sign.
A 2012 Toyota Highlander was traveling southbound on Alden Road and did not have a stop sign.
The Dodge, for unknown reasons, pulled out into the intersection and collided with the Toyota.
The driver of the Dodge, an 82-year-old Rockford man, is employed by a medical transportation company and was transporting a customer, Knop said. He was not injured.
The passenger of the Dodge, a 63-year-old Harvard man, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a seatbelt.
The driver of the Toyota, a 37-year-old Middleton, Wisconsin man, along with two juvenile occupants were all treated and released at the scene.
Seatbelts were used by the driver of the Dodge and all the occupants of the Toyota.
Alcohol is not believed to be a contributing factor.
The investigation is ongoing by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Major Traffic Crash Investigation Unit and the McHenry County Coroner’s Office.
