A stretch of Route 23 south of Ottawa is open after a near collision between a semi and a car.   It happened just after 3:30pm Thursday on the bridge over Covel Creek,  two miles south of the city.  AM 1220 WLPO news talked with the Sheriff’s office. The Sheriff’s office believes the car entered the semi’s lane forcing it to swerve.  The driver was successful in avoiding the car.  Each vehicle ended up in opposite ditches.  The driver of the car,   a woman from outside LaSalle County, went to St. Elizabeth Medical Center.   St. Elizabeth does not release condition reports to the media. More details are expected sometime Friday.
