Lake County, IL – A pedestrian was fatally hit by a vehicle on Route 22 in North Barrington, Illinois, sparking a thorough investigation by local authorities. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office reported that the incident occurred around 6:55 p.m. on Tuesday, near the intersection with Rainbow Road. Responding deputies found a 65-year-old man from North Barrington dead in a ditch line, a victim of the collision.
