McHenry County, IL – Two-Vehicle Crash on River Rd Results in Critical Injuries

McHenry County, IL (February 2, 2024) – A serious two-vehicle collision on River Rd in unincorporated McHenry left two drivers injured Thursday morning. Responding at 7:19 a.m., the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, Island Lake Police Department, and McHenry Fire Department found the injured drivers, with no passengers involved.

A 1996 Ford Club Wagon van heading north attempted an illegal pass in a “no passing zone,” lost control, and collided with a southbound 2010 Honda Element. The accident occurred near Moraine Hills State Park’s entrance. The Ford’s driver was ejected, and the Honda’s driver needed extrication. Both were hospitalized. The Ford’s driver, a 39-year-old man from Jacksonville, Oregon, later faced life-threatening injuries and was airlifted for further treatment. The 53-year-old McHenry woman driving the Honda was in serious but stable condition. Authorities are still investigating the crash.
