Clare crash victims stable at hospitals

CLARE – A 54-year-old Elgin woman was in stable condition Tuesday afternoon after a crash Sunday in which an SUV pulled in front the the sedan in which she was riding.

Jody F. Stepnowski was the passenger in a sedan driving west on Route 64 about 9:30 a.m. Sunday when an SUV driving north on Malta Road went through the stop sign, DeKalb County Sheriff's police said. The sedan collided with the passenger side of the SUV, and both vehicles rolled into a field.

The SUV's driver, Kori Nickence, 20, of the 400 block of East Main Street in Plano, was charged with disobeying a stop sign, driving without insurance and underage possession of alcohol. The passenger in the SUV, Cassandra A. McGuire, 19, of the 500 block of East Jefferson Street in Malta, was charged with underage possession of alcohol. Both were taken to Kishwaukee Hospital, where they were in stable condition.

Earlier reports from police said the crash took place on Sunday afternoon and gave a different name for McGuire.

Stepnowski was taken to Kishwaukee Hospital and transferred to OSF St. Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, where she was described as stable. Condition reports were not available for the sedan's two other occupants: Francis E. Stepnowski, 54, and Joseph F. Stepnowski, 22, both of Elgin.
