A Lakemoor manwas killed in a crash late Christmas Eve in north suburban Wauconda Township.

The driver of a Ford Taurus lost control shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday while traveling east on Route 120 near Fisher Road, according to Lake County sheriff’s office Sgt. Christopher Covelli.

The car slid sideways into oncoming traffic and was struck on the passenger side by a Nissan Rogue SUV, Covelli said.

There was up to 3 feet of intrusion into the four-door car, according to the Wauconda Fire District.

Alan M. Bern, the driver, wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and was pinned inside the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Lake County sheriff’s office. An autopsy Tuesday found he suffered “traumatic injuries” related to the crash, but did not rule on his final cause and manner of death pending further reports.

The 58-year-old McHenry man driving the SUV was taken to Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening, authorities said.

Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit was investigating the crash.
