Man hospitalized after Illinois River accident

Posted by wlpo on September 1, 2011

A day after his pleasure boat hit a barge on the Illinois River, a man from Dwight remains hospitalized in critical condition.  Police believe Leo Ehman had been drinking before the crash Wednesday afternoon east of the Starved Rock Lock and Dam.

Police say Ehman’s boat hit the barge three times as the barge was entering the locks.  He’s being treated at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.
