A 37-year-old woman was killed and a 39-year-old man was seriously injured after they were struck by a vehicle while crossing the street in Mundelein Tuesday evening.
The Mundelein Fire Department, Countryside Fire Protection District and Mundelein Police Department responded around 11:36 p.m. Tuesday to Butterfield Road and Canterbury Lane in Mundelein.
Mundelein Interim Chief of Police Jason Seeley said officers received reports of a vehicle crash involving pedestrians at the intersection.
Officers arrived to find two injured pedestrians on the west side of Butterfield Road just south of Canterbury Lane.
A 37-year-old woman had severe, life-threatening injuries and a 39-year-old man had significant but non-life-threatening injuries, Seeley said.
Both victims were transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville where the female victim died.
The Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT) was called to the scene and began an investigation.
A preliminary investigation shows the pedestrians were walking west crossing Butterfield Road, Seeley said.
A vehicle, driven by a 67-year-old, was traveling southbound when it collided with the pedestrians.
Seeley said the driver of the vehicle did not sustain injuries and was cooperative with investigators.
Officers do not suspect the driver was impaired but toxicology results are pending, Seeley said.
The 39-year-old man remains hospitalized undergoing treatment for his injuries.
The Lake County Coroner’s Office has not yet released the identity of the female victim.
A second, separate crash occurred shortly after the first, Seeley said.
One of the drivers suffered minor injuries and was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center.
The pedestrian-involved crash remains under investigation by the Mundelein Police Department, MCAT and Lake County Coroner’s Office.
