A 39-year-old man died after he was struck by an SUV and suffered critical injuries on Route 120 on the border of Park City and Waukegan Friday evening.
The Park City Police Department, Waukegan Fire Department, Gurnee Fire Department and Waukegan Police Department responded around 6:45 p.m. Friday to the area of Belvidere Road and Staben Avenue in Park City.
911 callers reported a pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle. The pedestrian was unconscious and not breathing and CPR was started.
The 911 callers initially gave locations of the McDonald’s in Park City and also the Burger King in Waukegan, which prompted the dual response on the border of the two cities.

The crash occurred on Belvidere Road just east of Staben Avenue in front of Armanetti Beverage Depot in Park City.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. No one in the vehicle was injured, fire officials said.
Officials with the Lake County Coroner’s Office said the pedestrian was a 39-year-old Park City man.
An autopsy is being scheduled for Monday morning.

The Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT) was requested to the scene to conduct a crash investigation.
