Sad news reported by the Daily Herald, a second person has died as a result of injuries sustained at the multi-vehilce crash in Arlington Heights March 10th.

A second man has died from his injuries after a crash caused by a wrong-way driver in Arlington Heights on Monday. Anatoliy Elkind, 48, of Vernon Hills died at 5:07 p.m. Wednesday, said Arlington Heights Police Capt. Andrew Whowell. Elkind was critically injured in the five-car crash on Rand Road near Thomas on Monday afternoon. He was being treated in the ICU at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.

Police say the crash was caused by Stanley Ksiazek, 51, of Palatine, who was speeding in the wrong lanes of traffic. Ksiazek’s red pickup truck hit four cars before leaving the roadway and flipping over. Ksiazek died from his injuries Monday.

Two other people were hospitalized in the crash with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Police have said they do not suspect alcohol was involved in the crash. Whowell said police reached that conclusion because there was no strong odor of alcohol when Ksiazek was extricated from his vehicle or when he was treated at the hospital. But a spokeswoman for the Cook County medical examiner’s office said toxicology tests are being done to test for both alcohol and drugs in Ksiazek’s system. Results of toxicology tests can take three or four weeks.
