The Aurora Patch is reporting on a Christmas Day car wreck that left five people in the hospital.
The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office is quoted as saying that a head on collision occurred on the 25th between two Chevey Trailblazers. The accident happened on Galena Road, in the 1300 block at approximately 3:30 PM.
Aurora resident Savaughn Strickland was proceeding westbound on Galena when it ran into the Trailblazer driven by Janice Armstrong, 80, also of Aurora.
The resulting collision badly injured Armstrong, along with four other people. They included Cassie Armstrong, Douglas Duffy, Ashley Robinson, and an unidentified 8 year old.
Strickland was cited for improperly using a lane, operating a vehicle without insurance, driving with a suspended license, and failing to reduce speed.
