Three people were injured in a crash in Cumberland County Saturday night.

The crash happened just after 8:30pm about six miles west of Toledo. State police say a vehicle driven by 50-year-old Lee VanDyke of Mattoon failed to yield at a stop sign and struck a vehicle driven by 23-year-old Timothy Westendorf of Dieterich. 

Westendorf and his passenger, 23-year-old Maria Gillespie of Teutopolis, were injured and were taken to Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center in Coles County. VanDyke was injured and was taken to Carle Hospital in Urbana.

VanDyke was cited for failure to yield and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
