Elgin man cited in Algonquin crash that injured DeKalb father, baby

ALGONQUIN – Two people, including a 1-year-old, were taken to an area hospital for injuries not considered life-threatening, and another man was cited after a crash in the Algonquin area, police said.

Police were called about 3 p.m. Thursday for a reported crash at Randall and Algonquin roads, according to scanner reports.

A 21-year-old DeKalb man and his 1-year-old son were taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin for injuries not considered life-threatening, Algonquin Police Sgt. James Sowizrol said.

Meanwhile, 28-year-old Joan S. Zado of Elgin was cited for failure to yield turning left and for not having a valid driver's license, Sowizrol said.

Zado's 2006 Chrysler 300 was going north on Randall Road and attempted to turn west on Algonquin Road, police said, adding that witnesses said the light was yellow. His vehicle was struck by a 2002 Ford Mustang, which was driven by the DeKalb man, Sowizrol said.

Both vehicles were significantly damaged and had to be towed from the scene.

The Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District also responded to the crash.
