QUINCY -- A Liberty woman was injured in a Monday night crash in Adams County.

The Adams County Sheriff's Department reports a 2015 Chevrolet Traverse driven by Jill L. Deege, 57, of Quincy, was eastbound on U.S. 24 at the intersection with N. 72nd as a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Wayne L. Warning Sr., 64, of Liberty, approached N. 72nd. The department said Warning was temporarily blinded by the sun and as he attempted a left turn onto N. 72nd, Deege was unable to avoid colliding with him.

One lane of U.S. 24 was temporarily shut down while the vehicles were towed from the scene.

Deege was taken by Adams County Ambulance to Blessing Hospital with minor injuries.

Warning was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

The department said both drivers were wearing seat belts.
