An 18-year-old Aurora woman received a citation after she was involved in a two-car crash Saturday north of Sugar Grove village limits, according to the Kane County Sheriff’s Office.

Kaleigh L. Bright, of the 1300 block of Post Road in Aurora, was cited for failing to stop at a stop sign on Scott Road at Harter Road, Kane County Undersheriff Pat Gengler wrote in an email. Bright’s red 2014 Chevy Spark at 5:53 p.m. Saturday hit a black 2008 Jeep Liberty at the intersection driven by a 54-year-old Maple Park woman, according to a Sheriff’s Office crash report.

As the Jeep Liberty entered the intersection traveling southbound on Harter Road, Bright disobeyed the stop sign on Scott Road and struck the Jeep, according to the report.

Bright told police she did not see that traffic on Harter Road did not have a stop sign, according to the report.

She and the other woman were taken to Presence Mercy Medical Center in Aurora for minor injuries, said Josh Lopez, a Sugar Grove battalion fire chief, on Saturday.

“Both cars were damaged on the front driver’s side,” Lopez had said.

The vehicles were towed from the scene, and there was more than $1,500 in estimated damages to any one person’s vehicle or property in the crash, according to the report.

Sugar Grove police assisted with traffic control after the crash, Sugar Grove Police Chief Pat Rollins said.
