LAKEWOOD – A 29-year-old Marengo woman was taken to Centegra Hospital-Woodstock after her car was struck Friday by a semitrailer at the north intersection of Routes 47 and 176.
Monica Whitney was driving a Nissan at 1:23 p.m. north on Route 47 when she tried to turn left onto Route 176 in front of a southbound semitrailer, said Lakewood Police Chief Lawrence Howell.
Kevin T. Jackson, 39, of North Aurora, who was driving the semitrailer, struck Whitney's vehicle, Howell said.
The Nissan was pushed into a pole, which only sustained minor damage, Howell said.
Whitney was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and has been treated and released, according to Centegra.
Howell said the crash is still under investigation, but citations for Whitney are pending.
