Oswego, IL (July 10, 2020) – On Monday, July 6, two people were injured in a vehicle collision in Oswego. The crash occurred at around 4:22 p.m. at the intersection of US-34 and Orchard Road.

Two vehicles were reportedly involved in the collision. According to local authorities, Petoskey made a turn in front of the other vehicle, causing the collision. Petoskey was consequently cited for failure to yield turning left.
