Two remain critical after six-vehicle crash in Gurnee
Two young people remain in critical condition following a six-vehicle, chain-reaction crash Friday morning on the Tri-State Tollway in Gurnee, officials said.
The patients, both minors, are at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.
They were originally taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, along with 14 of the other drivers and passengers involved in the crash.
Condell spokesman Josh McColough said 12 patients have been released and another was expected to be released sometime Saturday. One patient previously considered critical was upgraded to fair condition, he said.
Illinois State Police said the crash occurred at about 10:50 a.m. Friday a mile south of Grand Avenue. A Western Star semitrailer truck was unable to reduce speed enough to keep from striking the rear of a Jeep Cherokee and Honda Civic that were stopped in traffic, causing a chain reaction, police said.
Master Sgt. Carlita Joe said no citations have been issued. She didn't expect to have any additional information Saturday.
