A Round Lake Beach man remains hospitalized after a high-speed crash that left his Corvette split in half in Grayslake Sunday evening, police said.
The Grayslake Fire Protection District and Grayslake Police Department responded around 9:55 p.m. Sunday to Rollins Road and Sheldon Road in Grayslake for a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.
Grayslake Police Chief Phil Perlini said a white 2009 Chevrolet Corvette was traveling westbound on Rollins Road at a high rate of speed.
The driver lost control and struck a curb on the north side of the roadway.
The rear end of the Chevrolet became “disjointed” and the remainder of the car traveled across all lanes of Rollins Road, Perlini said.
The car then struck a curb and tree on the south side of the roadway.
The male driver was transported by ambulance to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.
Perlini said he did not know the condition of the victim, who remains hospitalized as of Monday afternoon.
The driver is currently unable to be interviewed by investigators due to his injuries.
It is unknown if he was intoxicated, Perlini said, adding that the roadway was wet at the time.
No charges have been filed yet pending the conclusion of the police investigation.
