Driver dies in head-on crash near Woodstock

Kenosha man lost control of car in icy road conditions, police say

An 88-year-old man from Kenosha, Wisconsin, has died from injuries after a head-on collision Thursday morning along Charles Road near Woodstock, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The sheriff’s office and the Woodstock Fire Department responded at 7:40 a.m. Thursday to a two-vehicle crash on Charles Road near Woodstock, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

Authorities said a 2000 Lincoln Town Car was traveling west on Charles Road when the car lost control, entered the eastbound lane and crashed head-on into a 2014 Hyundai.

“This caused both the Lincoln and the Hyundai to exit the roadway to the south,” according to the sheriff’s office.

The driver of the Lincoln was the 88-year-old man. He was taken to Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital in serious condition and later pronounced dead, according to the sheriff’s office.

The driver of the Hyundai was a 46-year-old Machesney Park man. He was treated at the scene with minor injuries and released, police said.

Both drivers were the only occupants of the vehicles. They both were wearing seat belts when the airbags deployed, according to the release.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office issued a warning Thursday morning of hazardous and icy road conditions. Two people were seriously injured in a separate crash near McHenry around the same time.
