Authorities said a driver was cited after firefighters had to extricate her from her heavily damaged vehicle following a t-bone crash near Marengo.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, Union Fire Protection District and Marengo Fire and Rescue Districts responded around 3:35 p.m. Sunday to the area of Dunham Road and Union Road between Marengo and Union in Coral Township.
Deputies arrived to find a two-vehicle crash involving a 2012 Hyundai Elantra and a Ford F-350.
McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Communication Specialist Emily Matusek-Baker said an investigation showed the Hyundai was traveling northbound on Dunham Road.
The Hyundai, driven by a 55-year-old woman from Oak Forest, disobeyed the stop sign at the intersection with Union Road, according to court records.
The Hyundai proceeded into the intersection when the Ford, which was traveling eastbound and did not have a traffic control device, struck the side of the Hyundai.
The Union Fire Protection District said they worked with the Marengo Fire and Rescue District to extricate the driver.
The woman was transported to Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Matusek-Baker said.
The driver of the Ford was uninjured and declined transport to the hospital.
The driver of the Hyundai was issued three citations for failure to reduce speed, disobeying a stop sign and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
