Trio of interstate crashes leave behind no injuries

Posted by wlpo on August 15, 2016

Here’s something refreshing to hear.  Nobody was hurt after three separate crashes on Interstate 80 Friday in La Salle and Bureau County.

Traffic was first snarled around 9:30 Friday morning after 43-year-old Ibrahim Mustafic of Washington state lost control of his semi because of rain.  He jackknifed his semi on westbound I-80 between Peru and La Salle.

About four hours later, a car driven by Natasha Siddiki of Plainfield went off westbound interstate 80 west of Princeton.  Siddiki ended up hitting a tree.  She told state troopers she reached for a bag of food on the passenger seat and lost control.

Finally about an hour after that crash, 44-year-old Jill Gaughan of La Salle says while changing lanes on westbound I-80 near Ottawa she saw a vehicle in her blind spot and overcorrected.  She drove through a fence and into some shrubbery.
