Sheriff: Chicago man crashed stolen car near Marengo

WOODSTOCK – A Chicago man was arrested Sunday after he crashed a vehicle reported stolen out of Harvard, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.

Richard A. Enriquez, 32, has been charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, driving under the influence and driving while license revoked.

Deputies were called to the 2500 block of Route 20 in an unincorporated area near Marengo at around 11 p.m. Sunday for a report of a single-vehicle accident, according to a press release.

The driver lost control of the pickup truck and left the roadway, according to the Marengo Fire Protection District.

While investigating, it was determined that the vehicle resembled a stolen vehicle reported by the Harvard Police Department, police said. Deputies later confirmed that the truck was stolen.

Enriquez was transported to Centegra Hospital – Woodstock after complaining of neck and back injuries.

He was released from the hospital Monday and charged.

Enriquez remained at the McHenry County Jail Monday awaiting his bond hearing.
