A man was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a two-car crash Wednesday morning in an unincorporated area of McHenry County in Dorr Township, according to the Lakewood Police Department.

A pickup truck heading west on Route 176 rear-ended a Ford Ranger that was stopped at the intersection of Route 176 and Dean Street while waiting to turn south on Dean Street, police said.
