SYCAMORE — A Sycamore woman was taken to the hospital for an evaluation Sunday night after a two-vehicle crash at Route 23 and Peace Road, authorities said.

Ruth Clark, 81, of Sycamore, was ticketed for allegedly driving an uninsured motor vehicle and disobeying a traffic control device, said Sycamore Police Lt. Darrell Johnson.

About 8:45 p.m., Clark was driving a 1999 Saturn vehicle west on DeKalb Avenue when she drove past a red light at Peace Road, Johnson said. The Saturn struck the front of 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe turning at the intersection, he said. A 57-year-old Sycamore woman driving the Hyundai and her passenger were not injured.

Clark was transported to Kishwaukee Community Hospital in DeKalb, Johnson said. A hospital official said Monday that there was no record of Clark at the hospital.
