Three people were injured, one of them critically, in a crash Friday afternoon in Alden Township in McHenry County.

The driver of a station wagon blew a stop sign at Alden and Thayer roads at 3:45 p.m. and crashed into an SUV, the McHenry County sheriff’s office said in a statement.

The 80-year-old woman driving the station wagon was critically injured and flown to a hospital in Rockford, the sheriff’s office said. Two people in the SUV, a 55-year-old woman and a 58-year-old man, were treated for minor injuries.

Police said that everyone was wearing seat belts, and that alcohol was not a factor.

The crash was being investigated by McHenry County sheriff’s office.
