Woman nearly crashes into Illinois River

Posted by wlpo on November 30, 2009

An experience that will put the fear of God into you- a woman who reportedly fell asleep at the wheel nearly landed her car in the Illinois River.

          La Salle County Sheriff’s Deputies say Deborah Konya of Seneca was on Route 71 south of the river in South Ottawa Township Sunday evening when she fell asleep while driving.  Police say she woke up and hit the gas instead of the break and drove through over 350 feet of thick underbrush and tree stumps before reaching the edge of the river.

          She didn’t need treatment and wasn’t ticketed.
