SCALES MOUND, Ill. (KCRG) - Icy conditions cause a single-vehicle crash in rural Jo Daviess County on Saturday morning, according to officials.

At around 7:29 a.m., the Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Office was sent to a report of a crash along West Stagecoach Trail, about one-quarter mile south of its intersection with West Council Hill Road.

The driver of the vehicle was taken to Midwest Medical Center in Galena for treatment of their injuries.

The Scales Mound Fire Department, Galena Ambulance, and Galena Territory Fire Department assisted in the emergency response.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
