The driver of the other vehicle, a 2006 Volvo, was traveling eastbound, lost control of the vehicle and entered into the westbound lane striking the officer's SUV head-on, he said.

Both the officer and the other driver were taken by a Wauconda Fire ambulance to the Northern Illinois Medical Center in McHenry. The officer was treated and released, and the other driver did not sustain any life-threatening injuries, Godlewski said.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene. The Lake County Sheriff's Office is investigating the crash.
