A 77-year-old Vernon Hills man died and a 32-year-old Woodstock man incurred minor injuries in a two-vehicle crash in unincorporated Richmond Wednesday morning. 

 At 7:00 a.m., on May 16th, 2018, the McHenry County Sheriff's Office, along with Richmond Fire Protection District and Wonder Lake Fire Protection District, responded to the scene of a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Tryon Grove Road and Keystone Road in unincorporated Richmond.

 Preliminary investigation indicated that a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban driven by the 32-year-old was traveling eastbound on Tryon Grove Road west of Keystone Road, and did not have a stop sign. A 2007 Toyota Prius, driven by the Vernon Hills man, was traveling northbound on Keystone Road approaching Tryon Grove Road, where there is a stop sign.  The Prius stopped but then for unknown reasons pulled out in front of the Suburban, causing the collision.     

 The driver of the Prius was pronounced dead on scene.  The driver of the Suburban was transported by ambulance to Centegra Hospital in McHenry with minor injuries.   

 Airbags deployed in the Prius, but not in the Suburban.  The drivers of both vehicles were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.  The investigation is ongoing by the McHenry County Sheriff's Major Crash Investigation Unit and the McHenry County Coroner's Office.
