One Injured in Ogle County Car Crash

ROUTE 2 ACCIDENT PIC _1539288276511.jpg.jpg

A car crashed into a telephone pole, forcing first responders to shut down a portion of Rt. 2 near Byron.

The crash happened just before 1pm Thursday on Rt. 2 between the city of Byron and Kennedy Hill Road.  Officers closed down a portion of the road because of a transformer attached to the pole.  They say it was an older model that had chemicals inside and it could be dangerous.

ComEd workers have repaired the transformer.  The driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
