In the Chicago Area Suburb of Barrington Hills a teen died in a car crash on early Saturday morning, according to the Chicago Tribune. The driver, a 17 year old Carpentersville resident, was killed when his car crossed the center line and struck an oncoming vehicle. The accident happened on Highway 62 just before 4 a.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Two passengers in the other car were injured and taken to Sherman Hospital in Elgin. There were no signs of drug or alcohol use involved, but toxicology results are not yet known.
Weather conditions were very poor for driving last Saturday, and it is very possible that ice and snow contributed to the crash.
