A 19-year-old woman suffered critical injuries and two others were also injured after a pickup truck t-boned a car on Route 41 near Gurnee Friday morning, police said.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office and Gurnee Fire Department responded around 11 a.m. Friday to Route 41 and Stearns School Road in unincorporated Gurnee for a vehicle crash with injuries.

Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located three vehicles with heavy damage, according to Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli.

A preliminary investigation shows a 2019 Ford F-150, driven by a 77-year-old Lindenhurst man, was traveling southbound on Route 41.

The Ford began driving through the intersection at Stearns School Road.

A northbound 2012 Ford Focus, driven by a 19-year-old Zion woman, attempted to make a left turn onto Stearns School Road, Covelli said.
