SYCAMORE — A 28-year-old Kirkland woman was injured after an Elgin man struck her vehicle Wednesday night in a Sycamore intersection.

Alejandro Valdivia, 19, of the 40W600 block of Plank Road in Elgin, was driving a Chevy van east on Route 64 around 6:40 p.m. Wednesday when he turned left in front of the Kirkland woman, who had been westbound on Route 64, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office.

The two vehicles collided at the intersection of Route 64 and West Motel Road.

The Kirkland woman was transported to Northwestern Medicine Kishwaukee Hospital in DeKalb with non-life threatening injuries, and Valdivia was cited for failing to yield while turning left.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
