A man was charged with driving under the influence after a two-vehicle crash in Marengo that left two children and three adults injured Thursday afternoon.

Chad Morin, 45, of the 800 block of Hickory Court in Marengo, was charged with driving under the fluence and improper lane usage.

The Marengo Police Department and Marengo Fire and Rescue Districts responded around 3:20 p.m. Thursday to the area of the Taco Bell, 19800 East Grant Highway, for a report of a rollover crash with injuries.

Marengo Police Department Public Information Officer Andrew Kjellgren said a maroon Honda SUV, driven by Morin, left the roadway and struck a silver Ford SUV. The collision caused the Ford to roll over.

During the crash, one of the vehicles struck the Taco Bell sign, causing minor damage.

Two adults and two children in the Ford were transported by ambulances to area hospitals. Morin was also transported to an area hospital by ambulance.

All five people have since been treated and released from the hospital, Kjellgren said.

The Huntley Fire Protection District and Woodstock Fire Protection District assisted at the scene.
