The driver of a vehicle escaped without serious injuries after a rollover crash into a cornfield near Hebron Sunday evening, fire officials said.
The Hebron-Alden-Greenwood Fire Protection District and McHenry County Sheriff’s Office responded around 6:28 p.m. Sunday to the 11300 block of Route 173 in unincorporated Hebron.
Alex Vucha, a spokesperson for the Hebron-Alden-Greenwood Fire Protection District, said crews received a call for a rollover vehicle crash.
Firefighters arrived to find a single vehicle on its roof in a cornfield near Route 173 and Seeman Road.
The male driver was evaluated at the scene for minor superficial injuries, Vucha said.
He did not require transport to the hospital. No one else was inside the vehicle.
The vehicle struck and damaged Nicor gas equipment as it drove off the roadway.
Nicor representatives responded to the scene and confirmed there was no evidence of a gas leak, Vucha said.
Route 173 was closed in both directions for 45 minutes until the crash was cleared.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash.
