Edgar J. Medina-Pineda, 18, of Round Lake Beach.

An 18-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly fled after causing a crash that left a woman injured and a car crashed against a house in Round Lake Beach.

Edgar J. Medina-Pineda, 18, of Round Lake Beach, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with injury, failure to give aid or render info, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, driving without a license and disregarding a stop sign.

The Round Lake Beach Police Department and Greater Round Lake Fire Protection District responded around 2:10 p.m. Sunday to the intersection of Elm Avenue and Heather Terrace for a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Emma Smoler said officers arrived and found a car had gone through a fence and was up against the side of a residence.

A victim was found inside the car, which had its airbags deployed.

The female victim told officers she was traveling westbound on Heather Terrace through the intersection.

Medina-Pineda failed to stop at the stop sign and struck the rear of the woman’s vehicle, causing her car to drive up to the residence, Smoler said.

Smoler said a witness observed Medina-Pineda fail to stop at the stop sign and cause the crash.

Medina-Pineda allegedly said he would come back and then never returned to the scene.

Medina-Pineda’s plate was stuck on the victim’s vehicle and officers later located the man, Smoler said.

He admitted to fleeing the scene and said he did so because he was scared, Smoler said.

The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported by ambulance to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.

Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered Medina-Pineda held on a $50,000 bond.
