Crash snarls traffic on Illinois River bridge in Peru

Posted by wlpo on August 27, 2014

Rear-end accidents continue to be a problem in a construction zone on Route 251. Two people were taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital after a crash Wednesday morning on the Route 251 bridge in Peru.

Police say Kiersten Hedgepeth of Wyanet didn’t realize traffic was stopped and hit Michael Harlow of Oglesby. Hedgepeth was ticketed.

A few hours later a couple of cars needed to be towed after another accident in the same construction zone.

Resurfacing work will continue into next week. You can avoid the construction by taking Route 351 instead.
