The driver of the Kia, a 28-year-old DeKalb man, was taken to a hospital in Elgin with injuries that weren’t believed to be life-threatening. The sheriff’s office said.

No citations were issued after the crash, the sheriff’s office said. Detectives are still trying to determine whether drugs, alcohol, texting or excessive speed played a role in the crash.
