Police say they are investigating after a 65-year-old man was hospitalized following a chain reaction crash involving four vehicles in Gurnee Tuesday morning.
The Gurnee Fire Department and Gurnee Police Department responded around 10:15 a.m. Tuesday to the intersection of Washington Street and Almond Road for a vehicle crash with injuries.
Officers arrived to find four vehicles involved in the crash, including a semi-truck.
A preliminary investigation shows that a 2012 red GMC, driven by a 68-year-old man, was traveling northbound on Almond Road, police officials said.
The GMC collided with the rear of a gray 1997 Toyota sedan, driven by a 65-year-old Gurnee man, who was also traveling in the northbound lane.
The force of the impact pushed the Toyota into the intersection, police officials said.
The Toyota collided with the driver’s side of a semi-truck, which was traveling in the westbound lane of Washington Street.
A fourth vehicle, a black 2022 Nissan sedan, driven by a 20-year-old man, was traveling eastbound on Washington Street.
Police officials said the driver of the Nissan was unable to stop in time to avoid the crash and collided with the vehicles.
The driver of the Toyota sedan was injured and transported by ambulance to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. His condition was not released.
No one else reported injuries and they all declined transport to the hospital.
The Gurnee Police Department said they are actively working to investigate the cause of the crash.
