Driver cited in 2-car crash near Harvard

HARVARD – A 54-year-old Norridge man was cited for not stopping at a stop sign and causing a two-vehicle crash Sunday near Harvard, police said.

The crash occurred about 3 p.m. Sunday at O’Brien and Alden roads, McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Sandra Rogers said.

A Toyota Camry driven by Konstadinos Sakoufakis was traveling east on O’Brien Road when Sakoufakis failed to stop at a stop sign at Alden Road, Rogers said. A Lexus RX 350 that was traveling south on Alden Road crashed into the driver’s side door of the Camry, she said.

Sakoufakis was trapped in his car, and it took 15 minutes for the Hebron-Alden-Greenwood Fire Protection District to free him, Rogers said. He later was cited for not stopping.

Sakoufakis was flown by REACT to Mercy Hospital in Rockford, and the driver of the Lexus was taken to Mercyhealth Hospital and Medical Center – Harvard. Both had injuries that were not life-threatening, Rogers said.
