One injured in five-car crash on DeKalb Avenue

SYCAMORE – A driver was taken to Kishwaukee Community Hospital with minor injuries after a five-vehicle accident that diverted northbound traffic on Route 23 on Thursday evening.

Heather Vierig, of Sycamore, was driving south on DeKalb Avenue near Oakland Drive, about 4:45 p.m. when she rear-ended a car that shifted into her lane to go around a turning vehicle, DeKalb Police Commander John Petragallo said. The car she hit was pushed into on-coming traffic and struck by two northbound vehicles, Petragallo said. It came to rest in the middle of DeKalb Avenue.

The driver of the car that was struck three times was taken to the hospital, and Vierig was ticketed for alleged failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, Petragallo said.
