A 69-year-old driver suffered serious injuries and was flown to the hospital after being extricated from their vehicle following a two-car crash in Antioch, authorities said.
The Antioch Police Department and Antioch Fire Protection District responded around 4:06 p.m. Friday to Route 173 and Brown Avenue for a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.
Antioch Village Communication Manager Jim Moran told Lake and McHenry County Scanner an investigation showed a 2008 Volvo was traveling westbound on Route 173.
The Volvo, driven by a 34-year-old Antioch resident, was approaching the intersection at Brown Avenue.
A 2016 Subaru, driven by a 69-year-old Antioch resident, failed to yield at the intersection, Moran said.
The Subaru entered Route 173 from Brown Avenue directly in the path of the Volvo.
A high-impact collision occurred and both vehicles came to a rest side by side off the roadway.
The driver of the Subaru was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extricated by firefighters, Moran said.
Moran said the Subaru driver suffered significant injuries but they were non-life-threatening.
A LifeNet medical helicopter landed nearby and the driver of the Subaru was flown to a trauma center for treatment.
The driver of the Volvo was transported by ambulance to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Moran said the driver of the Subaru was cited for failing to yield.
