Crash injures 2 in Crystal Lake

CRYSTAL LAKE – Two people, one in critical condition and another with injuries that were not life-threatening, were sent Friday to Centegra Hospital – McHenry after a four-vehicle crash at Routes 176 and 31, according to a Crystal Lake Police Department news release.

All four of the vehicles involved were northbound on Route 31 on the north side of the intersection. Three of the vehicles had come to a stop about 3 p.m. when a fourth vehicle hit one vehicle and then hit a second, which forced that vehicle into the final vehicle, the release said.
