Three hurt in 3-vehicle crash near Elgin

ELGIN TOWNSHIP –  A 16-year-old boy from Campton Township was injured in a three-car crash about 3:30 p.m. Monday at the intersection of McDonald and Stevens roads in unincorporated Elgin, after he drove through a stop sign, the Kane County Sheriff’s Office said.



The teen was taken to Delnor Hospital in Geneva with minor injuries, according to a statement.



The teen was driving a 2002 Chevy Malibu north on Stevens Road approaching the intersection with McDonald Road and failed to stop at a stop sign, police said. The Malibu collided with a Nissan Murano that was traveling east on McDonald Road, which flipped over and landed on its roof.  



The driver, Suzana Gomez, 55, of unincorporated Hampshire, was taken to Provena St. Joseph Hospital in Elgin with serious but nonlife threatening injuries, police said.



When the Murano was flipping over, it struck a 2005 Chevy Impala traveling west on McDonald Road. The driver, Ryan Deaton, 21, of unincorporated Elgin was taken to Sherman Hospital in Elgin with minor injuries.



It appears all drivers wore their seat belts. It does not appear that drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash, police said. The teenager was cited for failing to stop at a stop sign and failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident. The crash remains under investigation, police said.
