MARENGO – A 70-year-old Aurora woman and a Roselle teenage girl were taken to area hospitals Sunday after a rollover crash in Marengo.
The Marengo Fire Protection District and Marengo police responded about 2:20 p.m. Sunday to Route 23 and Harmony Road in Marengo for a report of a crash, Marengo Police Chief Richard Solarz said. When emergency responders arrived, they found two vehicles off the road. One was upside down.
A Berwyn 18-year-old was driving west on Harmony Road when he said he could not stop at the stop sign because of gravel on the road, Solarz said. The 18-year-old told police his vehicle slid through a stop sign and struck another vehicle, which the Aurora woman was driving south on Route 23.
The vehicle that was struck then struck a road sign and came to rest upside down. The 18-year-old’s vehicle left the road and struck a utility pole.
The teenage girl, who was a passenger in the first vehicle, was taken to an area hospital in unknown condition, Solarz said. The Aurora woman also was taken to the hospital.
The 18-year-old man was cited for disobeying a stop sign. Both vehicles were towed from the scene. Solarz would not provide the name of the teenager who was cited.
Marengo fire officials said they could not provide more details.
