A Plainfield teenager was seriously injured in a two-car crash at Schlapp and Cherry roads near Oswego Tuesday night, Kendall County Sheriff's police said.

According to police, at about 8 p.m., 18-year-old Daniel Valenzio was driving east on Cherry Road at Schlapp with three passengers in his car when the vehicle entered the intersection and was struck by a northbound vehicle.

Valenzio was taken to Rush-Copley Hospital in Aurora, said sheriff's police.

His passengers were also taken to the hospital, said police, who did not have information on their conditions Wednesday.

The driver of the second vehicle, refused medical treatment at the scene, police said.

Plainfield and Oswego EMS responded to the crash.

Valenzio was cited for failure to yield at an intersection, according to police.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that passengers in Valenzio's car were not injured. Patch apologizes for the error.

Plainfield is on it, time to install some red light cameras on 59 and lockport to generate the revenue to cover this easy fix.

If you can read the driver ran a stop sign. Dont blame rt126 blame the kid who doesnt respect the traffic laws.

Really Mike.....nothing to do with "respect". A bad intersection, a lot of traffic and a tragic accident.

So, if the intersection is ever improved, and someone fails to yield resulting in another accident, who do you blame then? Perhaps the one who failed to yield?

This accident did not occur where those kids were killed. It's an intersection further north that does not need a stop light. This was merely caused by a driver that failed to stop at a stop sign.
