A 62-year-old Woodstock man has died as the result of a single vehicle crash that occurred on Saturday afternoon in the 10100 block of Illinois Route 120 near the south intersection of Thompson Road, in unincorporated Woodstock.

 On March 9, 2019 at 2:28 p.m., the McHenry County Sheriff's Office and the Woodstock Fire/Rescue District responded to a single vehicle crash involving a 2016 Subaru Forester that had crashed into two trees on Illinois Route 120 near the intersection of Thompson Road.

 On-scene investigation indicated that the Subaru had been traveling northbound on Illinois Route 120. For unknown reasons the Subaru crossed over the southbound lane of travel and exited the roadway to the west striking a guardrail. The Subaru then crossed back over all lanes of travel and exited the roadway to the east, striking the trees.  

 The driver of the Subaru was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash. The driver was seat belted at the time of crash and alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash. 

 The investigation continues by the McHenry County Sheriff's Office Major Crash Investigation Unit and the McHenry County Coroner's Office.
