One injured in single-car rollover

MOUNT MORRIS – One person suffered minor injuries Friday during an early-morning rollover crash in the 2000 block of West Mud Creek Road.

Ogle County sheriff’s deputies responded to the accident shortly after 4 a.m. An investigation revealed that a 16-year-old boy from Mount Morris was driving west shortly before 3:30 a.m. on Mud Creek Road. He lost control of the car, which entered the north side ditch and rolled twice before coming to rest in the ditch.

The driver and a 17-year-old male passenger were not injured in the crash. A 15-year-old girl suffered an injury to her hand, and was taken by ambulance to Rockford Memorial Hospital. The driver was cited for having no valid driver’s license, failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident, and having an unlawful number of passengers. The accident remains under investigation.
