Three people were injured after a Jeep slammed into the rear of a cargo van that was stopped in the roadway near Woodstock Thursday, police said.

The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District and McHenry County Sheriff’s Office responded around 11:50 a.m. Thursday to Charles Road and Timberline Trail in unincorporated Woodstock for a vehicle crash.

McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Sandra Rogers said that a 2013 Nissan cargo van had been stopped in traffic due to tree trimmers.

A flagger was conducting traffic control while the tree trimmers worked along the side of Charles Road.

A 2018 Jeep Renegade, driven by a 56-year-old McHenry woman, struck the back of the stopped Nissan, which was driven by a 36-year-old McHenry man.

Rogers said that both drivers and a 41-year-old Lake Geneva, Wisconsin man, who was a passenger in the Nissan, were all transported by ambulances to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Woodstock.

All three people suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Jeep was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, Rogers said.

The roadway was reopened approximately 30 minutes after the crash.
