An 18-year-old Round Lake Beach man died Wednesday morning in a two-car crash on Rollins Road just west of Drury Lane in Avon Township near Third Lake, officials said.

The man, whose name has not yet been released, was driving a 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX west on Rollins Road about 9:05 a.m. when he lost control and went into a slide, Lake County sheriff's Sgt. Christopher Covelli said Wednesday.


Based on the damage at the scene, it appears the victim was driving "at a high rate of speed," Covelli said.

The Subaru struck an eastbound 2008 Toyota Tundra driven by a 36-year-old McHenry man.

The driver of the Toyota was uninjured, according to Covelli.

The crash remains under investigation.
