Route 251 crash sends two drivers to hospitals

Posted by wlpo on February 25, 2016

A left turn and not weather is to blame for a crash north of Peru that sent a couple drivers to the hospital.

Deputies say 73-year-old Keith Althaus of Mendota was southbound on Route 251 when he turned left, into the oncoming car of 52-year-old Cynthia Saylor also of Mendota. A few moments later, 71-year-old Roxann Stewart of Utica hit Althaus’ car which was still in the road.

Althaus was taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru while Stewart was taken to St. Margaret’s in Spring Valley. Saylor wasn’t hurt.

No tickets were handed out. The crash happened just before six Wednesday evening.
