A 64-year-old Buffalo Grove woman has been hospitalized after her car was hit by an unlicensed driver Thursday night in Prospect Heights, according to police.

The accident occurred around 8:40 p.m. at the intersection of Milwaukee Avenue and Palatine Road, said Cpl. William Caponigro of the Prospect Heights police department.

Pablo Patricio, 32, of the 1700 block of Greenwood Road in Glenview, was cited for failure to yield and driving without a valid driver's license, Caponigro said.

Patricio was in the left-turn lane on Milwaukee Avenue when he decided to get back into a northbound lane. He hit two cars, including the Buffalo Grove woman's vehicle, which traveled about 100 feet and landed on its roof, Caponigro said.

Firefighters got the woman, who was semiconscious, out of her car and transported her to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge in an unknown condition, Caponigro said.

Patricio and the driver of the other vehicle did not have any injuries, he said.
