A woman had to be extricated from her vehicle following a two-car crash Tuesday afternoon in Bolingbrook.

Lt. Mike Rompa said a 43-year-old man driving a 1996 Monte Carlo was pulling out of the main parking lot at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, 500 Remington Dr., onto Remington at around 3 p.m. when he struck an eastbound Toyota Highlander in the left-hand turn lane.

The Monte Carlo struck the driver's side of the Toyota, causing "substantial damage," Rompa said, and pushing it onto the curb.

The driver of the Toyota, a 45-year-old woman, had to be extricated by the Bolingbrook Fire Department. She was immediately taken to Adventist hospital, Rompa said, and her injuries did not appear to be life threatening.

A section of Remington was shut down for a short time following the crash, according to police.

Monte Carlo stupid. (Yes, I am stereotyping) Left hand turn on a 45 mile an hour 4 lane road without the benefit of a middle separated highway or median. MAKE A RIGHT AND FIND A SAFE PLACE TO TURN AROUND like every other well educated insured motorist does.
