Four-car crash snarled traffic on Route 251

Posted by wlpo on September 6, 2011

The need for paying attention to the road cannot be overstated.  One crash led to another on the Route 251 bridge Tuesday afternoon and it left many people sitting in traffic.

Traffic was down to one lane while police and wreckers cleared the four-car crash.  Police say southbound traffic was moving slowly for whatever reason when someone apparently was caught off guard and rear ended the car in front of them.  That car hit the car in front of them and so on.

Four people were taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital to be checked out.
