DeKALB – Around 10:09 a.m. Friday, a car crash occurred at the 1500 block of South Fourth Street. Two cars were involved, an SUV and a five-axle truck.

There was one person in each car, and one person was transported to the hospital.

“I do know one car was coming eastbound and the truck was going southbound,” said Sgt. Tony Kwasniewski, a DeKalb police officer on the scene. “It (the car) hit the back of the truck. The back axle of the trailer is damaged.”
