CORTLAND – Two people were transported to Kishwaukee Community Hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries Sunday after a two-car collision south of Cortland.

At 2:20 p.m., Sandra Gramly, 69, of Elburn, was traveling eastbound on Keslinger Road and stopped at the intersection of Keslinger and Somonauk roads, said deputy Josh Duehning of the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office. At the same time, Richard Sullivan, 51, of Sandwich, was traveling northbound on Somonauk Road.

Duehning said Gramly pulled her Saturn Vue in front of Sullivan’s Chevy Trailblazer. The collision caused both cars to go off the road, destroying the stop sign that drivers going east on Keslinger would use.

Gramly and a passenger in the Trailblazer were taken to Kishwaukee, Duehning said. Sullivan did not report any injuries.

Duehning was unable to say what kind of role Sunday’s weather – rainy and extremely foggy – played in the collision. He said it is still under investigation.
