DEKALB (WIFR)-- An elderly man is seriously injured after turning in front of an oncoming vehicle in DeKalb last night.

85 year old, Wilbur Copple of Sycamore was heading north on Peace Road when he attempted to turn left onto Route 64 and was t-boned by Donald Farace of Loves Park who was heading south on Peace Road.

The force of the impact spun Copple's car around which then ran into a third car that was waiting to turn behind him.

Copple was flown to Rockford Memorial. The drive of the third car was treated for minor injuries at Kishwaukee Hospital.

Charges are still pending.
