Whether its day or night, the driver coming towards you could be drunk.

Peru Police say a three car crash on Plank Road Wednesday afternoon was caused by a drunken driver. Jose Romero-Montesinos of Woodridge is accused of crossing into the other lane of traffic on Plank Road near the Armory and hitting Alexandra Brisbin of Princeton. Brisbin then spun around and hit a truck driven by Daniel Mathy of Peru.

Both Romero-Montesinos and Brisbin were treated at Illinois Valley Community Hospital. Mathy was okay. Romero-Monetsinos was arrested for DUI.

Traffic was rerouted off of Plank Road for about 45 minutes after the crash which happened just after 3 o’clock Wednesday afternoon.
