A car ended up in a Hanover Park backyard Monday morning after colliding with another vehicle in a busy intersection nearby, authorities said. The 2003 Chevy Malibu was traveling north on County Farm Road just before 7 a.m. when it collided with a 2010 Nissan Altima, whose driver was making a left turn onto eastbound Schick Road, according to Hanover Park Deputy Police Chief Tom Cortese. The Chevy hit a village-owned fence on the northeast corner of the intersection, then went into a private backyard where it struck a swing set and trampoline, Cortese said. Police identified the driver of the Nissan as Eduardo Torres, 22, of the 5200 block of Lemon Lane in Hanover Park. Torres sustained minor injuries and was issued a citation for failure to yield. The driver of the Chevy was charged with no insurance, police said.
