Crash along Route 71 sends four people to Peoria

Posted by wlpo on November 26, 2015

The choice to speed has an Aurora man and three of his passengers spending their holiday in the hospital.

La Salle County deputies say 22-year-old Everardo Ruiz was flying down Route 71 near Norway Wednesday afternoon when he hit three other cars. Ruiz and three of his passengers were taken initially to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa before being flown to OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria. One of the other drivers was treated and released from the Ottawa hospital.

Ruiz has been ticketed for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident but the crash is still under investigation.
