Authorities say a man was killed Wednesday evening in Lake in the Hills after he lost control of his vehicle and hit a guardrail, causing the vehicle to roll over.
The Lake in the Hills Police Department and Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District responded around 9:20 p.m. to Algonquin Road and Pyott Road.
Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District Deputy Chief John Knebl said crews received a call for a single-vehicle crash west of the intersection.
An off-duty Palatine firefighter was first on the scene and reported the victim was in traumatic arrest, Knebl said.
The crash, which occurred across the street from an Algonquin fire station, involved a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.
Fire crews arrived to find the Toyota rolled over onto its roof. No other cars were involved.
Knebl said paramedics pronounced the male driver of the Toyota dead at the scene. No one else was inside the vehicle.
Fire crews remained at the scene for approximately five hours to provide lighting for crash investigators.
The westbound lanes of Algonquin Road were shut down during the crash investigation.
Police said the Toyota had been traveling westbound when it lost control, struck a guardrail and flipped over.
The Lake in the Hills Police Department said the crash is under investigation by their Traffic Accident Investigation Unit.
The release of the victim’s name is being withheld pending family notification.
