Teen critically injured in Campton Hills crash

CAMPTON HILLS – One person remained in critical condition Friday afternoon following a two-car crash on the eastern edge of Campton Hills, authorities said.

Campton Hills Police Chief Dan Hoffman said the crash happened at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday when a 2007 Chevrolet Aveo traveling on Dean Street disregarded the stop sign at the intersection with Route 64, which has the right of way.

The Chevrolet was hit by a full-size van traveling east on Route 64, Hoffman said. He said the car’s passenger side received the brunt of the impact.

The driver of the Chevrolet – identified as Sarah Lundgren, 29, of Streamwood – was taken to Delnor Hospital in Geneva for injuries that were not life-threatening, Hoffman said.

Her passenger – a 15-year-old girl who lives near the crash site – and the other driver – Jose Alvarado of Oswego – initially were taken to Delnor Hospital in Geneva, Hoffman said, but they later were flown to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove in critical condition.

Alvarado was listed in fair condition Friday afternoon, a hospital spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said they could not comment on the teen’s condition because of her age. Hoffman said Friday afternoon that he had no updates about the teen’s condition.

The accident remains under investigation, Hoffman said.

He said alcohol does not appear to have been a factor and that all of the individuals were wearing a seat belt.

No tickets had been issued, he said.

The Campton Hills Police Department was assisted by the St. Charles Police Department, the Kane County Sheriff’s Office and the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team, Hoffman said. Units from the Fox River and Countryside Fire/Rescue District also responded to the scene.
