Teen recovering after Campton Hills crash

CAMPTON HILLS – A 15-year-old girl, injured last week in a two-car crash in Campton Hills, is improving, Campton Hills Police Chief Dan Hoffman said Monday.

“She’s going to be OK,” Hoffman said Monday, adding that he recently had spoken to a member of the girl’s family.

The crash took place about 8:30 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Dean Street and Route 64. A 2007 Chevrolet Aveo, which was traveling on Dean Street, disregarded the stop sign at the intersection with Route 64, which has the right of way, Hoffman had said.

Hoffman said the Chevrolet was hit by a van, and the passenger side received the brunt of the impact.

The 15-year-old – who lives near the crash site – was a passenger in the Chevrolet. She and the driver of the van, Jose Alvarado of Oswego, initially were taken to Delnor Hospital in Geneva. They later were flown to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove in critical condition.

Alvarado on Monday was listed in fair condition. A hospital spokesman was unable to comment on the teen’s condition because of her age, but Hoffman said the teen’s condition was improved. The driver of the Chevrolet, Sarah Lundgren, 29, of Streamwood, was taken to Delnor for injuries that were not life-threatening, Hoffman had said.
