A driver was cited after causing a two-vehicle crash that left both drivers injured and a semi-truck rolled over on Green Bay Road in Zion, police said.
The Zion Police Department, Zion Fire Department and Winthrop Harbor Fire Department responded around 11 a.m. Thursday to 9th Street and Green Bay Road in Zion for a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.
Zion Police Department Lt. Derek Zaloudek told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that a Chevrolet Cruze was traveling westbound on 9th Street.
Traffic on 9th Street has a stop sign but cross traffic on Green Bay Road does not have a stop sign.
The Chevrolet, driven by an 18-year-old Winthrop Harbor man, attempted to turn onto southbound Green Bay Road, Zaloudek said.
The Chevrolet failed to yield to a Mack 600 truck pulling a trailer, which was traveling northbound on Green Bay Road.
The driver of the Mack, a 59-year-old Round Lake Beach man, attempted to avoid the Chevrolet but struck the front driver’s side quarter panel.
The Chevrolet sustained extensive damage and the Mack spun around before rolling over onto its driver’s side.
Both drivers and multiple witnesses corroborated the chain of events, Zaloudek said.
Both drivers suffered minor injuries and were evaluated by medical personnel. Both declined transport to the hospital.
Zaloudek said the driver of the Chevrolet was cited for failing to yield at an intersection.
Green Bay Road was closed for approximately three hours for a crash investigation and to allow Roger’s towing to remove the truck from the roadway.
