An 18-year-old Crystal Lake woman was issued a citation after a three-vehicle crash Wednesday at Route 14 and Exchange Drive in Crystal Lake.

Sarah Caspari was driving a Honda Odyssey east on Route 14 when she made a left turn onto Exchange Drive and struck a Ford Focus heading west on Route 14, Crystal Lake Police Sgt. Ryan Coutre said. The Ford Focus crashed into a Toyota RAV4 after being hit, Coutre said.

No one was injured in the crash, he said.

Two of the vehicles were towed, and the crash shut down the westbound lanes of Route 14 from about

7 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Caspari was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash, Coutre said.
