Two women were transported to the hospital after firefighters had to extricate one of them following a four-vehicle crash near Woodstock Tuesday morning, authorities said.
The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District, Wonder Lake Fire Protection District and McHenry County Sheriff’s Office responded around 8 a.m. Tuesday to the intersection of Charles Road and Raycraft Road in unincorporated Woodstock.
Woodstock Fire/Rescue District Communication Specialist Alex Vucha said crews received a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.
Firefighters arrived and located four vehicles sustaining moderate to heavy damage.
The cars were scattered throughout the intersection.
A total of three people were evaluated on the scene by paramedics and a fourth person declined evaluation, Vucha said.
Paramedics transported the female driver of a white minivan to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Woodstock.
Paramedics also transported the female driver of a black subcompact SUV to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Huntley.
One of the drivers involved was trapped and had to be extricated from their car, Vucha said.
Both women suffered minor injuries that were non-life-threatening.
Vucha said the roadway was closed in both directions for nearly an hour for cleanup and vehicle removal.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the cause of the crash.
