One person was injured in a Friday evening crash in Montrose.

The crash happened at 5:22pm on Spring Creek Road at I-70.  Illinois State Police say a vehicle driven by 20-year-old Fredy Cambranes-Barrera of Chicago turned into the path of a vehicle driven by 20-year-old Amber Shedelbower of Wheeler and Shedelbower's vehicle hit the other vehicle on the passenger side.

A passenger in the Cambranes-Barrera vehicle, 18-year-old Marangeli Velasquez of Chicago, was injured and was taken to St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham for treatment.  Police cited Cambranes-Berrara for failure to reduce speed to avoid the crash and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
