Crystal Lake’s Village Road Speedway – Part 1

January 12th I got the following email from a Village Road homeowner in Crystal Lake via the link at the bottom of this web page.

His neighbors were the victims of a 17-year old girl’s ramming her vehicle into their home.

The email follows:


We live on Village Road in Crystal Lake off Swanson.

I think they think they are at the INDY 500 here.

Before last night a car actually flew over berm and took out 2 driveway lights on the house on the corner, the Gilberts, and damaged the grass, and same house had another car drive thru yard at high speed ripping up grass again.

Last night it was a 17 yr old girl who took out 2 trees just missed fire hydrant lost pieces of her SUV along the way on right side of street.

Then (she) flew across the street up over massive snow bank until she slammed into a house.

Someone got out and ran, and then she backs up a few times, puts it in 4X4 and flies out again flying over yet another snow bank and leaving the seen of the accident.

Due to shift change police didn’t show up until home owner chased and caught them with the help of the Lake in the Hills police who we hear on the scanner were helping, fire truck arrives, ambulance, still not CL police.

Home owner makes offender drive back to his house and finally CL police show up saying it was shift change.

People just fly down this street and someone could get killed.

Many many many children live on this block and the one street light only works when it wants to and complaints have been made about that too and nothing happens.

Ok thanks for letting me vent.

  1. Hi i live on 52 s. mchenry ave and a few months ago me and my friends caught some young drunk punk trying to smash out the the lights on the light poles of the crystal lake public library paking lot across the steet. We grabbed him up and sat him down and called the CL police….. they didnt come for 10 minutes and our house is barely a half mile away from the police station ok and while waiting for the cops to come the teen got up and ran we chased him but he busted through a wooden fence some how and some really thick bushes and got away………. When the awesome CL police came they asked so where is he?? We told them you dumbasses didnt come fast enough and he took off they wanted to charge us for filing a false police report!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you believe that B.S.?? We laughed at them and told them to learn how to do their job our taxes pay them so well for and we walked away… Did i say we only live a half mile away from the police station?? These police are pathetic issuing tickets to parents when they are at their childrens schools for donuts for dad’s day!! WOW JUST WOW.. please i hope some one puts my comment in the paper so others can see how moronic our police that are supposed to be protecting us are.. And send me a copy when you do.. thank you
