Three hospitalized after Fox Lake crash

FOX LAKE – A man was taken by helicopter to Advocate Condell Medical Center in critical condition Saturday with injuries suffered when the vehicle he was driving hit a tree.

The crashed occurred 4:30 p.m at 71 Nippersink Blvd. in Fox Lake, said Ed Lescher with the Fox Lake Fire Department. Two passengers, both unidentified, also were taken to the Libertyville hospital. They went by ambulance.

It was unclear whether the driver or the passengers were wearing seat belts.

The front end of the vehicle had such extensive damage that Lescher said he couldn’t tell what make it was.

“It was pretty banged up – to say the least,” he said.
