Three car crashes, all believed to be weather-related, took place Dec. 4 with the first major snowfall of the season.
At approximately 11 a.m., personnel from Woodstock Police Department, Bull Valley Police Department, Woodstock Fire/Rescue District and McHenry County Sheriff’s Office responded to a vehicle on its side at 10010 Country Club Road, Woodstock.
According to WFRD Captain Brendan Parker, the driver was unable to get out of the vehicle due to it being on its side, and the windshield was removed to assist with extraction. The driver was the sole passenger and was transported with non- life-threatening injuries to Centegra Hospital-Woodstock.
At approximately 3:22 p.m., personnel from WPD and WFRD responded to a vehicle that slid off the roadway and into a pond near the intersection of Castle Road and Cobblestone Way in Woodstock. There were no injuries, and the driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle.
At approximately 7:45 p.m., personnel from WFRD and MCSO responded to a vehicle that struck a tree at 13814 Washington St. in Woodstock.
One passenger refused treatment at the scene, and one was transported to Centegra Hospital-Huntley with non- life-threatening injuries.
The snowfall combined with slick roadways were believed to be factors in all three incidents, according to Parker.
