GALENA, Ill. (KWQC) - Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a single-vehicle crash Sunday, according to a media release.

The sheriff’s office received a report of the crash about 11:31 a.m. on West Stagecoach Trail at Heller Lane in rural Galena. Deputies on scene moved a 17-year-old girl from the vehicle and took her and a 12-year-old boy to an area hospital for treatment of their injuries, officials said.

Deputies say the girl was traveling west on Stagecoach Trail with the boy as a passenger when she lost control of her vehicle on some icy pavement. While trying to regain control, she over-corrected, causing the vehicle to drive off the northern portion of the roadway, hit several trees, and come to rest in a deep ditch.

County officials say the crash is still under investigation.
