The accident occurred about 8:30 a.m. at the intersection of Woodfield Road and West Frontage Road in Schaumburg with one vehicle southbound on West Frontage Road and the other eastbound on Woodfield.

A blue 2003 Ford Explorer driven by a 44-year-old Schaumburg woman and a 3-year-old female passenger struck the passenger side of a white 2001 Infiniti QX4 driven by a 51-year-old Arlington Heights woman with John Moore.

Both two vehicles were found near a damaged traffic signal at the southeast corner of the intersection.

Four people were taken to Alexian Brothers; three were treated and released.

The intersection and exit ramp was closed until 12:30 p.m. for accident investigation.

The Schaumburg police Department traffic crash reconstruction team is asking witnesses to call 847-882-3534.
