ROCK COUNTY (WKOW) -- Five people are hurt in a two vehicle crash in Rock County Monday night.
Just after 6:00 p.m. Monday, Rock County deputies and Janesville fire and EMS were called to a two-vehicle accident of West County Trunk Highway A and North County Trunk Highway H.
Investigators say a Chevrolet Blazer driven by a 17-year-old girl from Janesville was heading east on CTH A and stopped to turn north onto CTH H. The driver let one vehicle pass, but then turned in front a 1994 Chevrolet Astro Van heading west on CTH A. The two vehicles collided near the front driver sides. The van was sent into an 180-degree spin.
Officials say the van was carrying four passengers and the driver, who are all from Janesville. The driver, a 32-year-old man, had to be cut from the vehicle and was airlifted to UW Hospital in Madison. His injuries are non-life threatening. The four passengers, including two children, were transported by ambulance to Janesville Mercy for minor injuries.
The driver of the Blazer was not transported by ambulance, but did receive medical care at St. Mary's Hospital in Janesville. She was cited for failure to yield the right of way while making a left turn.
