McHenry crash sends three to hospital, including one flown to Libertyville hospital

Two others taken to the McHenry hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening

A two-vehicle crash Thursday evening sent three people to the hospital, including one person who had to be extricated from the vehicle and was then flown to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, McHenry police said.

The crash took place about 4:05 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Elm Street, which also is Route 120, and Curran Road, the McHenry Police Department said in a news release.

The initial investigation determined a black 2006 Ford Crown Victoria and a gray 2012 Hyundai Veloster collided in the intersection, causing the Ford to exit the roadway and rest upright in a drainage ditch on the southeast corner of the intersection, according to the release.

Two people were in the Ford, according to the release. The driver did not report any injuries at the scene, but because of the damage it took firefighters about 15 minutes to extricate the passenger from the vehicle.

The passenger was then flown by LifeNet McHenry to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, according to the release. McHenry police said the passenger’s condition was unknown at the time of the release.

An attempt to reach the McHenry Township Fire Protection District Thursday evening was not immediately successful.

Four people were in in the Hyundai, two of whom did not report any injuries at the scene and two of whom were taken to Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.

The intersection was partially closed for about an hour, according to the release. The crash is under investigation.
