A multi-vehicle crash involving a semi-tractor trailer and several pickup trucks in southwest Yorkville left at least one person injured Friday morning on Route 47 and Walker Road.

The driver of a pickup ran a stop sign on Walker Road near Route 47 about 7:15 a.m. and was T-boned by a tractor trailer, which forced another pickup to crash, according to Illinois State Police.
