Police say a woman intentionally pushed her car into a pond after being upset about her care at Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Lake Forest Wednesday morning.

The Lake Forest Fire Department and Lake Forest Police Department responded to the incident around 5:35 a.m. Wednesday.

Lake Forest Deputy Police Chief Rob Copeland told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that a woman had been at the emergency room of Northwestern Medicine Hospital, 1000 North Westmoreland Road.

The woman was unsatisfied with her care, or lack of care, and got into her 2016 Nissan Rogue, Copeland said.

She drove the Nissan to the east side of the hospital on Westmoreland Road adjacent to Route 41.

The woman drove the car off the roadway into the grassy area next to the large pond.

Copeland said the woman then put the car in neutral, got out of it and pushed it into the pond.

Paramedics transported the woman back to the emergency room after the incident for treatment of her original ailment.

Ernie’s Wrecker Service was called to the scene to pull the vehicle out of the water and tow it.

Officers did not issue the woman any citations and the scene was cleared by around 7 a.m., Copeland said.
