BARRINGTON HILLS – A 61-year-old man who died following a four-vehicle accident Sunday in Barrington Hills has been identified as Ronald Ziolo, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

The accident, which took place around 3 p.m. Sunday, closed Route 59 from Route 68 to Route 62 for several hours. The investigation is ongoing.

According to the Barrington Hills Police Department, a 2002 Chevrolet Suburban was northbound on Route 59 when it sideswiped a 2005 Toyota and then hit head-on a 2001 Dodge Intrepid, both driving south. A fourth vehicle, a 2003 Ford Escape, was unable to avoid the accident and rear-ended the Intrepid.

Ziolo, who was driving the Dodge Intrepid, was killed, and his passenger, a 44-year-old woman from Orlando, Fla., was taken to St. Alexius Hospital in Hoffman Estates.

The driver of the Suburban, an 18-year-old man from Barrington Hills, was taken to Advocate Good Shepard Hospital in Barrington. The driver and passenger of the Ford Escape, a 44-year-old woman and a 61-year-old man, both from Fox River Grove, were taken to Good Shepherd Hospital.

None of the injuries were life-threatening.

The driver of the Toyota, a 57-year-old woman, was not injured.
