Accident on Rt 251 sends five to the hospital

Posted by wlpo on August 22, 2014

Roadwork started Wednesday on Route 251 in Peru and already there have been two accidents near the construction zone. Two women and three children were taken to a nearby hospital Thursday afternoon.  Police say Marjorie Rhodes of La Salle was heading north into Peru when she rear-ended a Jeep driven by Sarah Preuser of Magnolia. Preuser’s Jeep bumped the pickup truck a head of it.

Rhodes, Preuser and three children were taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital. Rhodes was ticketed.

Earlier in the day police handled a similar accident but nobody was hurt.
