Cause of death released for driver killed in Barrington Hills fiery crash

A driver was killed and another was seriously injured in a head-on crash Wednesday night in northwest suburban Barrington Hills.

A Ford F-150 pickup truck was traveling east on County Line Road just before 9 p.m. when it struck a Hyundai Palisade that was going west near Bellwood Drive, police said. The crash caused one of the vehicle's engines to catch fire. Firefighters from the Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District arrived and extinguished the blaze.

The driver of the pickup truck was pronounced dead at the scene. He was identified as 30-year-old Josue Campuzano-Cuin, of Carpentersville. The 46-year-old woman who was driving the Hyundai was taken to Good Shepherd Hospital where she was listed in serious condition.

The Lake County Coroner's Office said Friday Campuzano-Cuin died from injuries sustained in the car fire. 

Toxicology results and the driver's identification are still pending. 

Due to the crash, County Line Road was closed between Ridge and Donlea roads until 3 a.m. as police and fire crews investigated.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation by Barrington Hills Police and the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team.
