Driver charged with DUI after two crashes near Gurnee
A driver who had to be cut from his SUV after two separate crashes near Gurnee was charged Monday night with driving under the influence.
The driver, Craig A. Schulz, 58, of Grayslake, was involved in a hit-and-run crash about 5 p.m. at Route 120 and Almond Road and, just seconds later, a rollover crash at Route 120 and Hunt Club Road, according to Detective Christopher Covelli of the Lake County sheriff's office.
Schulz also was charged with failure to reduce speed and not having insurance. Additional charges for the initial crash are pending, Covelli said.
Covelli could not immediately provide the driver's blood alcohol content.
Schulz was taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville and treated for injuries deemed not to be life-threatening, said John Skillman, shift commander with the Gurnee Fire Department.
No other vehicles were involved in the rollover crash, but traffic was tied up late Monday afternoon on Route 120 as authorities investigated and a tow truck worked to remove the vehicle.
Schulz was released on a recognizance bond since he is still in the hospital, Covelli said.
He is due in court March 23.
