Peru, IL (December 26, 2019) – A four-vehicle collision took place Monday evening, December 23rd, in Peru, Illinois. The crash occurred near the intersection of IL-251 and I-80 at around 5:26 p.m. David C. Moore, 31, of LaMoille, Illinois was charged with failure to reduce speed to avoid a collision.
According to Moore’s account, he had looked down while traveling on IL-251 NB, and when he looked up, he rear-ended a pickup truck driven by Scott E. Krafft of Sycamore, Illinois.
This caused a chain reaction where Krafft’s vehicle struck a Volkswagen Beetle driven by Rachel Corbly of Streator, Illinois, who then struck a vehicle driven by Raul Alonso-Gonzalez of Spring Valley, Illinois. None of the drivers were injured in the crash.
Two passengers, identified as Macey L. McMahan, 23, of Streator, and Teresa Vera, 58, of Spring Valley, were transported to Illinois Valley Community Hospital. Local officials are conducting an investigation into the collision.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
