A 20-year-old Valparaiso woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday night in unincorporated Lake County near St. John, police said.
Patti Van Til, spokeswoman for the Lake County Sheriff's Department, said the woman was driving south at 6:40 p.m. in the 8300 block of Patterson Street when she became distracted and crossed the center line into the northbound lanes.
The woman side-swiped a Dodge SUV driven by a Cedar Lake man.
Van Til said the Valparaiso woman was transported to Franciscan St. Margaret Health hospital in Dyer. The Cedar Lake man was not injured.
No citations were issued related to the crash, Van Til said.
