The coroner’s office has identified a Round Lake man killed in a head-on crash in Round Lake Beach that left six others, including four children, hospitalized.

The Greater Round Lake Fire Protection District and Round Lake Beach Police Department responded around 8:33 p.m. Tuesday to Route 83 and Lexington Drive for a report of a serious crash with injuries.

Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that a sheriff’s deputy on patrol happened to come upon the scene immediately following the crash.

Covelli said the deputy found a child with major injuries. The child was unconscious and not breathing.

The deputy performed CPR on the child until paramedics arrived and took over care.

Round Lake Beach Deputy Police Chief Wayne Wilde said officers arrived to find a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and 2012 Chevrolet Silverado involved in the intersection. Both vehicles had heavy damage.

The 41-year-old man driving the Chevrolet Equinox was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek said Wednesday afternoon that the driver was identified as Epifanio Camarena, 41, of Round Lake.

Preliminary examination results indicate Camarena died from multiple blunt force injuries from the crash, Banek said.

Six others, including the driver of the Chevrolet Silverado, were transported by ambulances to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Wilde said.

Passengers in the Chevrolet Equinox included a 44-year-old woman and four children.
