An Oswego woman was hospitalized in a one-car crash after swerving to avoid an animal at about 9:30 a.m. Monday near Douglas and Wooley roads, according to the Kendall County Sheriff's office. 

The 20-year-old woman, who lives in the 400 block of Sudbury, moved her car suddenly to avoid the animal and left the roadway, causing the vehicle to rollover, the sheriff's office said. The woman could not identify the type of animal, said sheriff's spokesman Bryan Harl.

She was taken to Rush-Copley Medical Center for her injuries by Oswego Fire Protection District personnel. The woman was not ticketed in the incident. 

This is the third car accident in recent days involving animals near Oswego. Two deer were hit last week —one along Route 71 and the other near Route 34 and Heritage Drive. The drivers in those accidents were uninjured, according to police reports.
