Wonder Lake snowmobile crash involved alcohol

WONDER LAKE - A 29-year-old man was under the influence of alcohol when he crashed his snowmobile Wednesday morning in Wonder Lake, according to the McHenry County Sheriff's Office.

Adam L. Treasure was issued a citation for operating a snowmobile under the influence of alcohol after being flown to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with injuries that were not life threatening.

Treasure was found injured by another snowmobiler, lying on the ground near a trail located in the 6800 block of McCullom Lake Road at around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday, according to a news release. The passerby then transported Treasure by snowmobile to Wonder Lake Fire Station No. 1 for help.

Flight for Life later flew Treasure to the Libertyville hospital.

Treasure was heading east on a trail in that area when for unknown reasons he left the trail and was ejected from his snowmobile, police said.
