Two-vehicle crash in McHenry causes closure at Bull Valley and Draper roads

Four people were entrapped in two heavily damaged vehicles after a crash Friday afternoon at Bull Valley and Draper roads in McHenry, a McHenry Township Fire Protection District official said.

The McHenry Township Fire Protection District responded at 3:35 p.m. and received assistance from the Wonder Lake Fire Department, McHenry Township Battalion Chief Mike Majercik said.

Two people were in each vehicle, and the fire department extricated all four, Majercik said.

Majercik could not confirm the conditions of any of the people in the crash, but one was flown by helicopter to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. The other three were taken to Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office announced a road closure between Draper and Cherry Valley for several hours beginning just after 4:30 p.m. Friday and urged motorists to avoid the area.

The road was reopened by 9 p.m., the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office said in an update.
