Huntley Road Crash Death Report Released by Crystal Lake Police

Here’s the unedited report from the Crystal Lake Police Department:

On Saturday, April 10th, 2010 at 11:48 PM, Crystal Lake Police and Fire Rescue Departments responded to the area of Huntley Road and Waterford Cut to the scene of a motor vehicle crash. Upon arrival, emergency crews determined that two vehicles had been involved.

It has been determined a 2001 Pontiac Trans Am, operated by Kyle J. Sievert (23) of Arlington Heights had been traveling west on Waterford Cut before turning southbound onto Huntley Road.

Sievert reportedly lost control of the Pontiac and entered into the northbound lane of Huntley Road, in the path of a 1994 Jeep Cherokee, operated by Mark A. Maioni (34) of Crystal Lake.

The vehicles collided within the northbound lane, with the passenger side of the Pontiac impacting the front of the Jeep.

The vehicles then left the roadway and came to rest on the east shoulder of Huntley Road, approximately 250 Feet South of Waterford Cut.

Rescue personnel removed Sievert and three passengers from the Pontiac:

  • Mariana Mitich (28) of Hawthorne Woods was transported by ambulance to Centegra-Northern Illinois Medical Center, McHenry for non-life threatening injuries.
  • Jennifer Franklin (25) of Mount Prospect was flown from the scene by helicopter to Condell Hospital, in Libertyville, while Sievert and
  • Vanessa M. Toby (24) of Schaumburg were transported by ambulance to Centegra Memorial Hospital-Woodstock for evaluation and treatment of serious injuries. Vanessa Toby succumbed to her sustained injuries and later died.

Mark Maioni and passenger Kari Singer (33), also of Crystal Lake were examined by rescue personnel and released on the scene.

Alcohol is suspected to have been a factor in this crash.

Criminal Charges are pending as this incident remains under investigation by Accident Investigators of the Crystal Lake Police Department’s Targeted Response Unit, and the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.

  1. RIP vanessa.. u are loved by so many and we will all be missing u..

  2. I was the first one to the scene as I was on way home from work. I immediately called 911, I did everything in my power to help these people. I never knew Vanessa or her family, But I held her until the fire rescue arrived. I wont ever forget what happened last night, and even though I never knew Vanessa, I will never forget her either. Life is a very delicate thing, and every moment is precious, God works in ways we may never understand, But I know without ever knowing Vanessa that she has gone to a better place, and it angers me sometimes that we can never put the pieces together on why tragedies like this occur. But i believe that for some reason God needed Vanessa, and that she will live on forever in everyone that knew and loved her.

    I never knew you Vanessa, But I will never forget you….RIP
