WOODSTOCK – A McHenry woman has been charged with two misdemeanors for a two-vehicle crash that sent three people to the hospital over the weekend.

Zandra Iandola, 20, was charged Monday with driving on a suspended license and drug paraphernalia possession – both Class A misdemeanors – before posting bond. Iandola, her 23-year-old passenger, Kayla Brehmer, and 73-year-old Donald Mecko, who drove the other vehicle, have all been released from the hospital.

Iandola's charges stem from a Saturday morning crash where Mecko's 1996 Chevrolet pickup truck struck Iandola's 1999 Chevrolet Blazer after she pulled out from a private driveway onto Route 176 where Mecko was traveling west.

After the collision, the Blazer rolled onto its passenger side and came to a rest in the center of the road. Traffic was diverted at the intersection for about two hours as crews investigated and cleared the scene.

Iandola also has been charged with a petty offense of failing to yield from a private drive. She is scheduled to appear in court at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 26.
