Posted by wlpo on January 25, 2013

A crash that stopped traffic on Interstate 80 sent two people to a local hospital.  It happened around 7:15am Friday near La Salle.

Police say Carolyn Copeland of La Salle was heading west on I-80 near the Route 351 exit when she apparently lost control of her mini van, crossed the median and hit a car heading east.

Copeland and the man in the car, Micah Robinson of Ladd were taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital.  Copeland was treated and released while Robinson was taken by ambulance to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.  He was listed in fair condition.

Eastbound traffic was affected for about an hour.
