Young girl hurt in crash near busy Peru intersection

Posted by wlpo on March 25, 2016

A teenage girl was hospitalized after a chain reaction crash in Peru.

Elizabeth Cartwright of La Salle was northbound on Route 251 Friday afternoon when she says her brakes failed, causing her to rear end Maria Fuentes of La Salle who was stopping for traffic near the Peru Mall. Fuentes was rear-ended by Cartwright, causing her car to get pushed into an SUV driven by Kiersten Horn also of La Salle.

A 13-year-old girl riding with Cartwright was taken to IVCH in Peru. None of the three drivers went to the hospital.

Cartwright was ticketed for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident and driving uninsured.
