Posted: Updated:
LONG GROVE, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A man was killed when the semi he was driving collided with a dump truck Tuesday morning in northwest suburban Long Grove, police said.

About 8 a.m., a 2005 Mack semi was heading east on Route 22 near Krueger Road when it crossed into the westbound lanes and hit a 2014 Peterbilt dump truck, Lake County Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Sgt. Sara Balmes said.

The dump truck tried to avoid the collision, but both vehicles ended up on the shoulder of the road, Balmes said.

The 51-year-old man driving the semi was pinned inside the cab of the truck for about 30 minutes following the crash, according to police and fire officials.

He was extricated and taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville where he later died, authorities said. His identity is not being released Tuesday afternoon.

The 66-year-old man driving the dump truck was taken to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington with non-life-threatening injuries, authorities said.

Sheriff’s police and the Long Grove Fire Protection District responded to the crash.
