Last Tuesday a cross-over car accident on Plank Road in DeKalb caused serious injuries to a Huntley man. The man was traveling west when a minivan traveling east crossed over the center line and hit him head on. He had to be extricated from his vehicle by rescue squads and was taken to Kishwaukee Hospital and then airlifted to Rockford. Authorities suspect that the driver of the minivan was distracted by her four year old daughter who was riding in the backseat of the minivan.The most common form of distracted driving is cell phone usage. However, other distractions inside the car such as children or other passengers can lead to a serious car accident. Accidents such as this serve as a graphic reminder to keep your attention focused on the road.
