Oswego, IL - Valencia Nichols Injured in Accident on IL-25

Oswego, IL (June 26, 2020) - A fiery, single-vehicle crash in Oswego left five people injured on Tuesday, June 23rd. The collision occurred at the 1150 block of IL-25 at around 9:35 p.m. A sergeant with the Kendall County Sheriff's Office reportedly heard the crash and found a Chrysler PT Cruiser on fire. 

The driver, Valencia Nichols, 18, was trapped inside, along with four other passengers. All five were transported to nearby hospitals, with three being taken to regional hospitals due to the severity of their injuries. An initial investigation found that Nichols was attempting to pass another vehicle when she lost control and crashed.

Nichols was cited for reckless driving, passing in a no-passing zone, and improper lane usage. An ongoing investigation into the crash is underway.

Our thoughts are with Valencia Nichols, the injured victims, and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
