MALTA - A local man has the epitome of a bad day.
Christopher Rangel, 28, was driving west on S. Malta Road near Willrett Road at 4:30pm Wednesday. The DeKalb Co. Sheriff's Office says Rangel lost control of his car, went into a ditch, struck a culvert, and overturned.
Rangel was taken to Rochelle Community Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A second passenger in the car, Maria Salas, refused medical treatment.
Rangel was cited for driving while his license was suspended, operating an uninsured vehicle, and failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash.
