Volo crash sends woman to hospital, fire official says

VOLO – A Wauconda woman was taken to the hospital after a T-bone-style crash between a car and a minivan Thursday night, officials said.

Wauconda Fire District Battalion Chief Kevin Pyne said crews responded about 5:40 p.m. to Route 120 and Volo Village Road in Volo.

A 1999 Ford Crown Victoria, driven by the Wauconda woman, was traveling south on Volo Village Road when for unknown reasons it entered Route 120 and was struck by a 2001 Toyota Sienna traveling west, Lake County Sheriff’s Sgt. Chris Covelli said.

The Wauconda woman was taken to an area hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Pyne said. Fire officials had to help her exit the car from the passenger’s side because of the heavy damage on the driver’s side, Pyne said.

The driver of the minivan and a passenger in the car were not injured, Pyne said.

Covelli said the crash still is under investigation, and it is likely the Wauconda woman will be cited for failing to yield.

The crash shut down a portion of Route 120 for about an hour and a half, he said. The Fox Lake Fire Protection District also responded, Pyne said.
