The latest crash at the intersection of Interstate 80 and Route 251 in Peru was allegedly caused by a driver running a red light.

Fifty-five year old David Davis of DePue told police he had a yellow light when he crashed into 34-year-old Melissa Didricksen of Utica on Saturday afternoon. Didricksen was turning onto Route 251 from the I-80 westbound off ramp.

Despite Davis’ claim of a yellow light, he was ticketed for running a red light. One of his passengers, 54-year-old Pamela Davis of DePue was taken to St. Margaret’s Hospital in Spring Valley. Nobody else was hurt.
