Illinois Crash Leaves 2 Teens Dead and 3 Children Personally Injured

Two teenagers died in a car accident after a speeding car packed with minors went off a road in the Chicago suburb of Long Grove. Three other children, two teen brothers and their 8-year-old sister, were critically personally injured. The crash occurred in the evening near Driftwood Lane in Lake County. The 15-year-old was driving when a Chevrolet Cobalt when one of its tires went off the road in the car accident. The car then veered back across the road, struck a picket fence and a driveway and then went airborne before crashing through several trees and coming to rest with the rear of the car against a large tree. The driver was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. A 14-year-old girl who was sitting behind the driver in the vehicle was thrown out during the car crash and was dead on the scene. A 15-year-old, 13-year-old and 8-year-old were all critically personally injured and taken to the hospital.
