One injured in four vehicle accident in Crystal Lake

CRYSTAL LAKE – A woman suffered minor injuries in a four vehicle crash Thursday afternoon.

Crystal Lake police responded at about 3 p.m. to a call for an accident on Route 31 near Ray Street. Three cars were stopped in traffic when the accident occurred, Sgt. Mike Gasparaitis said.

"A fourth came in and plowed into the third, and a chain reaction pushed each car into each other," he said.

One driver was transported to Centegra Hospital - McHenry with minor injuries.

Route 31 was reduced to one lane for about 20 minutes but has since been fully reopened, Gasparaitis said.
