MARENGO – A single-vehicle crash near Marengo sent one person to the hospital Tuesday evening, a police official said.
McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Tim Creighton said crews responded about 6:48 p.m. for the report of a single-vehicle crash at Route 20 and West Union Road in Marengo.
Creighton said a 2008 Mazda was traveling west on West Union Road when the sun “blinded him” and he missed the stop sign. The vehicle struck a guardrail.
The driver, a 38-year-old man from Union, was taken by the Marengo Rescue Squad to Centegra Hospital – Huntley, Creighton said.
He was the only person in the vehicle.
The Union man was cited for disobeying a stop sign and operating an uninsured vehicle, he said.
