Two hurt on I-80 near Little Vermilion River bridge

NT Staff

Two people were injured, and one extricated from the wreckage, in a two-vehicle crash reported at 7:15 a.m. today on Interstate 80, just east of Route 351 in La Salle.

A preliminary report from state police was pending and names of the victims were not available. La Salle fire chief Andy Bacidore reported two motorists were taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital, Peru, and one of the occupants had to be extricated.

The injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

Traffic on eastbound Interstate 80 was halted from the Little Vermilion River bridge westward while emergency responders were on the scene.

State police confirmed several weather-related crashes throughout the area, including a car in a ditch near the junction of Interstates 80 and 39, and Marshall County Sheriff’s Department and Varna firefighters were called to a rollover accident with injury on Route 89 near Magnolia.
