A 79-year-old Huntley woman has been cited for what police said was her role in a Sunday morning head-on collision in Carpentersville that sent her and two Elgin men in another car to the emergency room.

Carpentersville Deputy Police Chief Michael Kilbourne said the crash at Huntley and Randall roads occurred about 10:30 a.m. after Edna Moyer, 79, who was driving a Cadillac CTS, turned left against the light from Randall Road onto westbound Huntley Road.

"Basically, she turned left into oncoming traffic and she did not have the arrow," Kilbourne said.

When she did that, she ran head on into a Honda Civic heading south on Randall Road, Kilbourne said. Moyer and two men, 34 and 31, were hurt, but police didn't know the extent of their injuries. Ambulances transported all three to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin, officials said.

They were treated and released from the emergency room the same day, Sherman spokeswoman Tonya Hudson said.

Moyer, meanwhile, was cited for failing to yield on the left turn and for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, Kilbourne said.
