A man was critically injured Tuesday afternoon in a head-on crash in north suburban unincorporated Wauconda.
About 3:45 p.m., a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder driving south on Fairfield Road just south of Bonner Road struck a northbound 1998 Chevrolet Flatbed Tow Truck, which was towing a van, according to a statement from the Lake County sheriff’s office. It was not known why the Nissan crossed the double yellow center line, causing the crash.
The 32-year-old man driving the Nissan was taken in critical condition to Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, police said. The driver and passenger in the tow truck were not injured.
The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.
