Death in Crash at Haligus and Algonquin Roads – Update — 10 Comments

  1. Vehicles frequently blow through red lights up and down Algonquin Rd.
    during morning and evening rush hours every day and
    nasty wrecks do happen all to frequently because of this.

    Why the local police in these jurisdictions fail/refuse to monitor this situation
    is disgraceful and now some poor soul has lost his life because of this.

    It wasn’t a matter of if, but when, someone would lose their life and I’m sorry to say
    that little to nothing will be done about it.

    Prayers to all involved and their families.

  2. I should have added that texting and blabbing on the cell phone is also
    a pervasive and chronic problem that goes unchecked.

  3. It kind of looks like the man died and THEN crashed into the 74-year-old.

  4. Honest, how do you know for sure that one of the drivers ran a red light, was talking on the phone or was texting? I’m not saying that all three aren’t chronic problems everywhere these days – they are. However, you can’t jump to that conclusion with what is known at this time. If you want to crack down on something, call the Algonquin PD and ask why no less than four of their cars on patrol today did NOT have their headlights on while using windshield wipers….. a requirement of the Illinois Motor Vehicle Code.

  5. @Big Orange – first off this happened in Huntley’s jurisdiction, NOT Algonquin.

    Second, If you saw Algonquin PD cars operating without lights as you claim then
    why don’t you report them to the proper authorities if you are so concerned about it.

    Third, I never stated that I “knew for sure” this is what happened, I
    merely stated what I have personally observed on a daily basis that causes frequent wrecks
    up and down Algonquin Rd.

    Perhaps you had better work on your reading comprehension before posting.

  6. This is not the place nor forum for these types of posts.

    Mr Stone had family and friends that do not need to see your opinions surrounding this unfortunate passing and incident.

    Dave was liked by all, he was funny, kind, and a great cook.

    He adored his family and friends and attended all events that any created.

    He was on his way to the airport to attend his niece’s graduation. Please address your concerns where it makes impact and not heartbreak.

  7. All that needs to be said here is “Thoughts and prayers to the victims, friends and families.” Or possibly “What can we do to help?”

  8. Suzanne and Meri? It’s not an obituary. This is a news and opinion blog. It’s a news piece. People comment on news pieces. If you want condolences go to the obituary page. Simple.

  9. That’s Cindy! Kind and thoughtful as ever.

    Much love for anyone affected by this.

    Be aware, and be in control of your auto.

  10. I knew Dave personally, and I am saddened and surprised. There is definitely more to the story than what some here may postulate.

    HonestAbe1<< EVERYONE knows that if you try to chastise any type of authority in the corrupt state of Illinois, you will bring wrath upon yourself.
