An unidentified motorist whose car flipped onto its side after striking another vehicle late Wednesday night on Naperville’s west side has been ticketed for disregarding a traffic signal and causing that crash.

A written Naperville police bulletin stated the crash occurred at 10:42 p.m. at Aurora and Ogden avenues. The intersection is near a strip mall anchored by a Jewel-Osco supermarket.

The unidentified driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash told police he or she was driving north on Ogden Avenue at the time, and attempting to turn left onto Aurora Avenue on a yellow traffic signal, according to the police report.

The light then turned red, and the driver of the at-fault vehicle entered the intersection while southbound on Ogden Avenue with that red light, the bulletin declared.

“Numerous witnesses” later told police the red car had run the red light, the report continued. The car struck the other vehicle and then “overturned on its driver-side,” entrapping the motorist, according to the bulletin.

Naperville Fire Department firefighters who were called to the scene extricated the driver from the car’s wreckage, the report stated. Paramedics took the driver to Edward Hospital in Naperville, after he or she complained of “pain in hands,” the bulletin indicated.

The driver of the other vehicle declined medical attention on the scene, according to the report.

Police did not respond Friday to several requests for further details about the crash.
