Semi and car collide north of Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on September 25, 2015

A stretch of Route 71 was closed nearly five hours Friday morning north of Ottawa.

Just before four o’clock, deputies say Ellen Widen of Ottawa was driving a car about a mile north of Interstate 80 on Route 71 when she drove into the other lane of traffic. Widen collided with a semi driven by Michael Caputo of Rushville.

Widen was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa. Caputo wasn’t hurt.
