5-year-old Marengo boy seriously injured in Coral Township crash
A 5-year-old Marengo boy is stable but in guarded condition after a Friday afternoon crash in Coral Township.
Authorities said the crash occurred about 3:50 p.m. when a 2001 Ford F-150, driven east on Coral Road by a 32-year-old Wisconsin man, failed to stop at the intersection of Coral Road and South Union Road. The truck, also occupied by the boy, then struck a 2013 Toyota Sienna traveling north on South Union Road.
All occupants were wearing their seat belts, air bags deployed within both vehicles, and alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
The boy was flown to Rockford Memorial Hospital. The driver of the Ford was treated and released at the scene. Both occupants of the Toyota, a 39-year-old woman and her 1-year-old daughter from Woodstock, were taken to Huntley Centegra Hospital where they were listed as stable.
The McHenry County sheriff's office Major Crash Investigation Unit is continuing the investigation.
