A man was cited after deputies said he rear-ended another vehicle Saturday in Diamond.

According to the Grundy County Sheriff's Office crash report, Jordan E. Cardosi, 19, of Kankakee, was traveling westbound on Illinois 113, west of Will Road, in a 1999 Chevy Cavalier, when he collided with the back end of a 2004 Chevy Monte Carlo driven by Jason T. Jelenich, 33, of Coal City, who was also traveling westbound.

Cardosi reportedly initially failed to notice that Jelenich had stopped, then applied his brakes, but was unable to avoid a collision. No injuries were reported.

About $1,500 in damage was reported to the front of Cardosi's vehicle and the rear of Jelenich's vehicle.

Cardosi was cited with failure to reduce speed.
