Two-car crash sends five people to hospital

Posted by wlpo on October 11, 2015

Make sure you always pay attention when the car in front of you is turning.

A two-car crash east of Ottawa that sent five people to the hospital was caused when a car drove into the back of someone turning.

Around 6:30 Saturday night, Michaela Hart of Marseilles was preparing to turn onto North 2950th Road from East 24th Road when she was hit from behind by Jason Hughes of Marseilles.

Hughes and his two passengers were taken to OSF Saint Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa. Hart was taken to Morris Community Hospital while her passenger, Michael Hart of Marseilles, was taken to OSF Saint Elizabeth Medical Center.

Hughes was charged with failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
