Mother and children taken to hospital following Route 71 accident

Posted by wlpo on February 3, 2015

Many roads remain covered in ice and snow. Slick roads likely contributed to an accident north of Marseilles Tuesday morning.

A La Salle County Sheriff’s Deputy says that Garrett Bennett of Sandwich was turning from Route 71 to East 24th Road when he hit a mini van driven by a woman that is five months pregnant.

Bennett and Jeanne Felesena of Sheridan and her two children were taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center. Nobody appeared to be seriously injured.  Bennett was ticketed for failure to yield.
