Two-car crash near Sandwich Fair sends teen to hospital
SANDWICH – A teenager is in critical condition at Good Samaritan Hospital after a two-car crash Saturday afternoon near the Sandwich Fair, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.
The release says 30-year-old Joshua V. Myers, of the 1300 block of U.S. Route 34 in Earlville, was westbound in a 2019 Honda Insight on Suydam Road when he stopped at the sign but then pulled into the intersection and was t-boned by a 1996 Honda Civic driven by the teenager, who did not have a stop sign.
The collision sent the Insight spinning into a utility pole on the southwest corner of the intersection, while the Civic flipped onto its roof in the southwest ditch, according to the release. The intersection is about a mile west of the south entrance to the fairgrounds.
Myers was treated at the scene and released, while the teenager, whose information is not being released because the victim is younger than 18, was flown to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove; the release says the teen is in critical condition but has been stabilized.
Both of the drivers were wearing their seat belts, the release says.
