Three injured Monday in Algonquin car accident

ALGONQUIN – Three people were taken to the hospital Monday with injuries not considered life threatening after a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Randall and Algonquin roads.

A Saturn SUV and Mercedes-Benz collided at the intersection at around 5 p.m. on Monday, according to the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District. The impact of the collision caused the SUV to rollover and come to rest upside down.

Two passengers from the SUV, a mother and her son, were transported to Sherman Hospital in Elgin with injuries that were not considered life threatening, Battalion Chief John Knebl said. The driver of the Mercedes-Benz, a woman, was also transported to Sherman Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Algonquin Road was shut down in both directions for more than a half hour.

Members of the Huntley Fire Protection District assisted with the incident.
