Posted by wlpo on June 8, 2014

A three car accident on Route 71, three and a half miles north of I-80 last night was the result of a hit and run driver. The Sheriff’s office said 31-year old Joshua Houghtby of Plano was southbound on Route 71 about 9 last night when his car veered into the northbound lane. It struck cars driven by 35-year old Eliezer Lopez of Naperville and 24-year old Isai Merino of West Chicago.
Houghtby, according to the deputy’s report, drove off, but was later arrested by Ottawa police. Eliezer Lopez was taken to St. Elizabeth’s for unknown injuries. There was no injury report on the other drivers.
