One person sent to hospital after Cary crash

CARY — A crash Wednesday at Route 14 and Cary-Algonquin Road involving four vehicles, including a school bus, sent one person to the hospital, the police department said in a news release.

Shortly after 8:30 a.m., a 54-year-old Cary woman, whose name was not released, was going north on Cary-Algonquin Road when she apparently ran a red light, police said.

Her vehicle was struck by a vehicle going west on Route 14, according to the news release. The crash then caused the Cary woman's vehicle to strike another vehicle and a school bus on the north side of the intersection.

At least two vehicles appeared to have sustained fairly extensive damage while the school bus's front end was only lightly tapped. The school bus did not have any students, Deputy Chief Mike Roth said on scene.

The Cary woman was taken to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, police said. Her condition was not immediately released.

A 51-year-old Barrington resident sustained minor injuries, but was released at the scene. No one else was hurt, police said.

Cary-Algonquin Road was closed between James Way and Industrial Drive as crews from the Cary Fire Protection District and the police department cleared the scene.

Charges are pending, but drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the crash, police said.
