Three suspects were taken into custody after a police chase from Lake in the Hills that ended in the vehicle crashing into a light pole in Algonquin, police officials said.
Officers with the Lake in the Hills Police Department attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a black 2010 Acura around 7:50 p.m. Sunday.
The vehicle fled from the officers near Willow Street and Seminole Trail and a pursuit was initiated.
The chase went through a residential area before continuing eastbound on Algonquin Road.
It went through Lake in the Hills and entered Algonquin at a high rate of speed.
Algonquin Police Department Sgt. Nate Stenger told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that Algonquin officers were notified of the pursuit.
Algonquin officers stood by but did not become involved in the chase, Stenger said.
The Acura eventually crashed into a light pole, which fell down into the roadway, near the U.S. Post Office on Algonquin Road west of Route 31 around 7:55 p.m.
The Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District responded to the scene and three ambulances were dispatched.
Stenger said one person was transported to the hospital with a police escort. The person’s injuries were unknown.
Eastbound Algonquin Road was shut down for approximately 30 minutes.
The driver of the Acura was identified as Jordan P. Carmody, 29, of Cary, according to a police report.
Carmody was charged with aggravated fleeing to elude, resisting arrest, driving while license suspended or revoked, possession of methamphetamine and obstructing justice. He was also issued numerous traffic citations.
Carmody was also wanted on at least four separate arrest warrants.
He was wanted out of Buffalo Grove, Lombard and Aurora for retail theft. The fourth warrant was issued by the Illinois Department of Corrections for a parole violation.
Two passengers, identified as David A. Bastidas, 32, of Woodstock, and Krystina Ziebell, 33, of McHenry, were also arrested, according to the report.
Bastidas was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and obstructing justice. He was also wanted for burglary out of Addison.
