Two people reported medical issues Wednesday evening after a crash when a vehicle failed to yield the right of way, according to the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department.

A Ford Explorer driven by a 17-year-old Ashley girl was southbound on County Road 27 at the intersection of U.S. 6 when it failed to yield the right of way to a Dodge van that was eastbound on U.S. 6 at 5:57 p.m., according to a news release. The van's front struck the Explorer's passenger-side rear quarter panel.  The van's driver, a 25-year-old man from Waterloo, was uninjured, but his passenger, a Fort Wayne woman, complained of having a seizure shortly after the crash and was taken a hospital by DeKalb EMS, according to the news release. The Explorer's driver reported having pain on the right side of her abdomen. Both vehicles were estimated to be a total loss.
