The coroner has released the identity of a 30-year-old man who was killed after he became trapped inside his truck that caught fire following a head-on crash in Barrington Hills.

The Barrington Hills Police Department and Barrington-Countryside Fire Protection District responded around 8:51 p.m. Wednesday to the area of County Line Road and Bellwood Drive in Barrington Hills for a vehicle crash with injuries.

Barrington Hills Police Department Press Information Officer William Walsh said a head-on crash was discovered by responding officers.

The crash resulted in a fire starting in the engine compartment of one of the vehicles.

Officers and firefighters arrived to find the fire spread to the passenger area of the car, Walsh said.

The fire was quickly extinguished by firefighters but the male driver was pronounced dead.

Walsh said a preliminary investigation showed the vehicle that caught fire, a white 2006 Ford F-150 pickup truck, was traveling eastbound on County Line Road.

The Ford struck a 2022 Hyundai Palisade that was traveling westbound on County Line Road.

Walsh said the male driver of the Ford who was pronounced dead at the scene was the sole occupant in the truck.

The driver of the Hyundai, a 46-year-old Algonquin woman, was transported by ambulance to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington in serious condition, Walsh said.

Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek said Friday that her office conducted an autopsy on the adult male victim on Thursday.

Preliminary autopsy results showed the driver died from injuries suffered in the fire.

The coroner’s office was initially unable to officially identify him until scientific identification could be performed.

Banek said on Tuesday that her office had positively identified the man as Josue Campuzano-Cuin, 30, of Carpentersville. Toxicology results are still pending.
