Waukegan police say one person was killed and two others were injured in a crash early Sunday morning in Waukegan.

Police responded about 1:30 a.m. to the area of Grand Avenue and Green Bay Road, according to a news release.


Investigators believe a 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer traveling north on Green Bay struck an eastbound 2011 Jeep Liberty in the intersection.

The driver of the Trailblazer was a Waukegan man in his 20s, and the Jeep was driven by a Waukegan woman in her 40s. Both were taken to a hospital with serious injuries, according to the release.

A male passenger in his 30s sitting in the front seat of the Jeep died from his injuries. His identity was being withheld pending family notification.

Investigators believe speed was the main factor in the accident, which remains under investigation
