One person was extricated when a car ended up in a pond after a crash at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday in Jo Daviess County, a news release says.
Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to an area of West Stagecoach Trail just east of NE Miner Road for a two-vehicle crash.
A 16-year-old, who was driving with a 13-year-old passenger, turned east onto West Stagecoach Trail, the release says.
Cassandra Smith, 32, of Apple River, was driving west on West Stagecoach Trail.
