Two Women in Critical Condition after Car Crash in Wauconda, IL

Two women are reportedly in critical condition after a collision with a dump truck on Route 12 in Wauconda on Friday afternoon. 

According to the Wauconda Police Department, the crash occurred at approximately 1:35 p.m. Friday, September 25 in the area of Route 12, south of Case Road. A blue dump truck hitched to a trailer with a bulldozer was pulling out of a private driveway in the 29000 block of Route 12 when a red BMW 325i crashed into its rear. 

The BMW had two unidentified female occupants who were seriously injured in the collision. They were transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, where they were listed in critical condition. The driver of the dump truck, only identified as a 69-year-old man, was uninjured, according to sources. 

A witness reportedly told investigators that the BMW was speeding when it crashed into the rear end of the truck. The Wauconda Police Department is working with the Major Crash Assistance Team to investigate the incident. No charges or citations have been issued at this time. The investigation is ongoing. 

Pending the outcome of the investigation, the women injured in the crash may be entitled to a personal injury claim. Severe injuries can leave car accident victims with substantial medical bills, extended medical treatments, and no or reduced income to help pay those bills. With the assistance of an attorney, car accident victims can seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering following such a traumatic event.
