Excerpts from the NWherald.com:

A high-speed police chase Wednesday morning ended in a fiery crash in front of the museum, 27582 Volo Village Road, Wauconda Police Chief David Wermes said.

A 22-year-old man from Wauconda was spotted by Wauconda police about 10:30 a.m. driving north on Route 12 at 84 mph. When police pursued the car, the driver sped up. A Wheeling police officer spotted the car driving about 100 mph.

The driver failed to navigate the intersection at Fox Lake and Volo Village roads, and crashed into a pole outside the auto museum.

When police caught up and took the driver from his car, a red 2014 Dodge Challenger, it caught on fire.

Wauconda Fire Lt. Dan Frey said firefighters responded to the crash and found a subject sitting on the side of the road with police. The man was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening. Firefighters extinguished the car fire without any injuries.
