Oswego police are investigating a two-car crash that sent three people to the hospital Wednesday evening.

Capt. Jeff Burgner said the crash was reported at around 6:41 p.m. at Route 30 and Harvey Road.

Burgner said investigators determined that a vehicle driven by a 56-year-old Aurora man was heading east on Route 30 when it crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic and collided with a westbound car driven by a 26-year-old woman, also from Aurora.

The male driver of the first vehicle was transported to the hospital, along with the female driver and a passenger in the other vehicle, according to Burgner, who said he did not have information on the extent of their injuries Wednesday night.

Burgner said police are still investigating, but do not believe impaired driving contributed to the crash. 

"Weather conditions were a contributing factor in the cause of the crash," he said.

The road was closed for several hours Wednesday night as Oswego's accident reconstruction unit worked at the crash site.

There should be a stop sign on route 30 at the intersect of route 30 & harvey rd or a no turn left sign say when you heading to route 30 from harvey rd you always must always make a right turn onto route 30 never ever a left turn

Oswego or the township (whoever has control) should just close off Harvey Rd. at Rt. 30.

That's what was happening? Was heading north, tying to get downtown Aurora. Police had roadblocks up on North 30 and then on Harvey just before 30. That's a nasty intersection. Shocked there aren'y more accidents there because of the number cars turning south on 30.
