A teen fleeing police runs over a Waukegan man who was hanging on the hood of her car: sheriff

According to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, a 17-year-old girl fleeing law enforcement ran over a 19-year-old Waukegan man who was on the hood of her car.

Following the incident, the man was taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with critical, life-threatening injuries, according to the sheriff’s office.

According to preliminary findings, the victim was attempting to intervene following a minor traffic collision involving a Toyota. To avoid being hit by the vehicle, the victim jumped on the hood of the Winthrop Harbor teen’s car.

At about 1:30 a.m. Monday, a Lake County sheriff’s deputy was on patrol in the 37800 block of North Sheridan Road in Beach Park when two vehicles fled a business at high speeds. The deputy noticed the victim waving for help from the hood of one of the vehicles, a 2004 Toyota Camry.

According to the deputy, the Toyota driver fled the attempted traffic stop and was pursued by the deputy. The second car’s driver passed the deputy and pulled alongside the Toyota. The Toyota driver swerved and abruptly stopped before fleeing, causing the Waukegan man to fall off the hood and be run over.

According to the sheriff’s office, the deputy assisted the victim while the driver of the second vehicle followed the Toyota and alerted the sheriff’s dispatchers to the driver’s updated location.

While the Toyota was traveling south on Interstate 94, another deputy, a sheriff’s sergeant, and Illinois State Police troopers began a pursuit. The driver was apprehended near Rosemont after a sheriff deputy used Stop Sticks to deflate the vehicle’s tires, according to the sheriff’s office.

According to the sheriff’s office, the Toyota driver and two passengers are in custody.

Sheriff’s detectives and the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Team are still looking into the incident.
