A two-vehicle, head-on collision left a 63-year-old Waukegan man dead Friday afternoon near Libertyville. The victim was Alexander Petropoulos.

The accident took place at 12:46 p.m. on Route 21, south of Route 120, and just north of Egidi Lane, according to Sgt. Michael Keller of the Lake County sheriff's office.

Keller said authorities were still investigating how the crash occurred. It involved a Chrysler minivan and a Chevrolet SSR.

Petropoulos, the driver of the minivan, was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville where he was pronounced dead.

A formal autopsy is scheduled for Monday, Keller said.

The driver of the Chevy was also taken to Condell, where he was listed in serious condition.

Route 21 was closed for almost three hours as authorities investigated the crash and cleaned up wreckage.
