Paramedics began performing lifesaving measures and transported the woman to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington.

Barrington Hills Police Department Press Information Officer William Walsh said the 75-year-old woman driving the vehicle appeared to have suffered a medical issue that led to the crash.

The Volkswagen left the roadway and struck several mailboxes, Walsh said.

The vehicle appeared to have been traveling southbound on Brinker Road before leaving the roadway on the west side of Brinker Road.

Walsh said the woman was alive when she was transported by the ambulance to the hospital.

Her current condition was not known but she presumably remains alive as the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office has not reported her death in their daily case reports.
