An 18-year-old driver has been ticketed her pickup truck flipped in a crash early Wednesday morning.
Both her and another woman in a different car were taken to Palos Community Hospital as a precaution, according to Palos Heights police. Neither driver involved in the wreck that happened at 6:49 a.m. in the intersection of Route 83 and Harlem Avenue was seriously hurt.
The pickup driver made a left-hand turn from Route 83 onto Harlem during a yellow light when the other driver smashed into her passenger side, causing the 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac to flip nearly completely over, according to police.
Police said the 18-year-old woman said she thought the other driver would stop for the yellow. She was cited for failure to yield.
The 49-year-old woman in the other car was driving a 1998 BMW.
