Oswego police officers and firefighters were busy Thursday dealing with three separate car accidents around town.
 
The first one occurred at about 8:20 a.m. near the south entrance of Prairie Point Elementary School near Grove Road and Lakeview Drive, according to Oswego Police.

A car driven by 23-year-old Yorkville woman collided with a vehicle driven a 48-year-old Oswego man. No injuries were reported, and no tickets have been issued. 

The second, and most serous accident occurred at about 11:30 a.m. on Route 34 near Route 30. Police said Isabel Vizcerra, 26, of Aurora was westbound on Route 34 when she approached Route 30 and began to stop.

A semi driven by Noel Rodriguez of Hampshire slammed into the back of Vizcerra, sending her to Rush-Copley Medical Center for her injures, police said. Rodriguez refused treatment for injuries.

Vizcerra was ticketed for not having a valid driver's license, and Rodriguez was ticketed for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

The crash shut down westbound Route 34 for about an hour as the scene was cleared, said Oswego Police Capt. Jeff Burgner. 

The final accident took place at about 2:55 p.m. at Chicago Road and Route 71. That three-car accident involved one 18-year-old Oswego man, a 20-year-old Montgomery woman and a 70-year-old Oswego woman.

No injuries were reported, and no tickets have been issued, police said.
