Wauconda crash sends two to hospital

WAUCONDA – A one-car crash about 7:20 p.m. Thursday in Wauconda sent two people to a hospital with injuries that Wauconda Fire District Battalion Chief Kevin Pyne said did not appear to be life-threatening.

“The car went off the road and into a tree” along Darrell Road, just north of Case Road, Pyne said.

Officials said the driver, a woman who was not identified, was pinned in the car. It took 90 minutes to extricate her. She was flown to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville and her passenger went to the same hospital by ambulance.

Pyne said the driver was conscious and alert during the extrication.

Darrell Road, from north of Case Road to Fisher Road, was closed for at least two hours because of the crash, Pyne said.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is investigating. The McHenry Township Fire Protection District and emergency units from Barrington and Cary provided assistance.
