The driver of a Hyundai Sonata got a scare earlier this week but was not injured after a snowplow hit her car hard enough to spin it around in the west parking lot of Delnor Hospital, according to Geneva police reports.
A New Holland 55441 skid steer with an affixed loader driven by Acencion Martinez, 39, of Aurora collided with the front of the Sonata drive by Terri Lynn, 52, of DeKalb around 8:12 a.m. Feb. 4 in the parking lot of Delnor Hospital, 300 South Randall Road, Geneva police reports said.
More than $1,500 damage was done to the Hyundai, and a tow was necessary after the crash, but no damage was reported to the skid steer.
According to reports, Martinez was westbound, plowing snow out of the west parking lot of the hospital when his skid steer hit the Sonata, which was southbound in a traffic lane.
The impact sent the Sonata into a half spin, where it rested facing southwest in a parking stall, reports said. Both drivers told police they did not see each other prior to impact.
