Authorities on Monday identified a 72-year-old man from Wisconsin as the person killed Saturday in a five-vehicle crash in Fox Lake.

Fox Lake police said that a driver headed south on Route 12 in a silver Infiniti tried to turn right onto Big Hollow Road. The vehicle crossed into the opposite lane, hitting four vehicles, including Kamen’s, waiting at the red light.

A passenger from Kamen’s vehicle, a silver GMC SUV, was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. The occupants of the other four vehicles were treated and released at the scene.
