Dangerous Intersection Near MCC Dangerous Intersection Near MCC


Just last week I wrote to the City of Crystal Lake and to IDOT to suggest attention to the intersection of U.S. 14 and Lucas Road, at the west end of the MCC campus. I suggested that a "right-turn only" restriction be imposed on Lucas Road traffic to deter drivers from darting across U.S. 14. Impatience must grow rapidly when a driver cannot find a break in traffic to cross the highway with a 50MPH speed limit in both directions.

About 3:30PM three vehicles tangled there today. You can see the front end ripped off the red sedan, and up the road about 50 yards was a pick-up truck that had to have spun around before it ran off the highway backwards while the driver was getting it stopped.

Crystal Lake PD was on the scene, taking names and numbers. It looked relatively minor, all things considered. Certainly it could have been a lot worse.

When you are heading for Crystal Lake, watch that intersection - it's just one long block west of the traffic light at MCC.
