McHENRY – A four-car accident sent three people to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries Tuesday.

The McHenry Township Fire Protection District received a call at 5:37 p.m. for an accident at the intersection of Route 120 and Chapel Hill Road, Battalion Chief David Harwood said.

At the scene, one person required a minor extrication before being transported to Centegra Hospital - McHenry. Two others were also taken to the hospital, Harwood said.

A fourth person was treated for injuries at the scene of the accident.

Crews cleared the intersection, which was never closed, by about 6:20 p.m, Harwood said.

During the accident and because of multiple calls to Mchenry Fire, Spring Grove Fire Protection District assisted the department by providing "change of quarters" coverage at one of the McHenry stations.
