Multi-vehicle crash in Niles, 7-10-20

Excerpts from the Journal-topics.com:

A high-speed crash Friday evening in Niles damaged six vehicles, but resulted in only minor injuries.

Police did not initially say how fast the black Volkswagen Jetta, driven by a 34-year-old Des Plaines man, was going westbound on Oakton Street as it approached Prospect Street. However, it was learned the Jetta somehow drove into the eastbound lanes just east of Prospect and struck a white GMC SUV driven by a 49-year-old Morton Grove woman.

This from Tyler Tobolt:

Wauconda Requested a dive Box Alarm for a rescue at Bangs Lake. After two hours into the incident it was turned into a recovery. 
Here are some photos from the scene.
 
Thanks, Tyler Tobolt

Divers and sonar technicians were looking for a 9-year-old boy in Bangs Lake in Wauconda Friday night. Wauconda police said they were called to Lakeview Villa Beach at about 7:20 p.m. for a water rescue. A 10-year-old boy and 9-year-old boy had been on the lake in a paddleboat, they went into the water and screamed for help. Nearby fishermen were able to pull the 10-year-old out of the water before emergency crews arrived.

Rescuers were still searching for the 9-year-old boy as of 9:45 p.m. Police said high winds and rough water carried the boy out towards the center of the lake. Fire officials said that 15 divers and a group of sonar technicians from both the Wauconda Fire Department and other nearby fire departments continued to search for the boy.

 

Fire officials said the 10-year-old boy did not sustain any life threatening injuries and that divers and sonar technicians would likely continue to search until midnight.
