Posted by wlpo on April 21, 2015

A chain reaction crash south of Ottawa sent four people to the hospital.

According to the La Salle County Sheriff’s Office, Jerri Churchill of Ottawa was on Route 23 Monday afternoon looking to make a left turn in her SUV. As Erin Schleutker of Ottawa and Danielle Lestronge of Streator slowed behind Churchill, Luke Holtzman of Grand Ridge came along and rear-ended Lestronge. Lestronge was pushed into Schleutker who then crashed into Churchill.

Lestronge and a young girl in her car were taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in Streator while Schleutker and a young girl in her car were taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa.

Holtzman wasn’t hurt but was ticketed for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
