Aroma, IL (February 4, 2020) – A two-vehicle collision left both drivers injured in Aroma Township, Illinois on Monday, February 3rd. The crash occurred near the intersection of IL-17 and North 4000E Road at around 8:25 a.m. Authorities responded to the scene to render aid to those injured in the accident.
Authorities reported that a 2014 Ford Escape driven by Frank A. Beggs, 66, of St. Anne, Illinois was traveling south on North 4000 E Road (Skyline Road) when he stopped at a stop sign. Beggs continued through the intersection without yielding, colliding with a westbound 2011 Ford Fusion on IL-17. Both Beggs and the 31-year-old Kanakee woman driving the Fusion were hospitalized after the crash.
Beggs was cited for failure to reduce speed and avoid an accident. Local law enforcement officials are currently investigating the cause of the crash.
Our thoughts are with Frank A. Beggs, the other injured victim, and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
