A woman was injured when the tractor that she was driving was struck from behind.
The 30-year-old woman was traveling on U.S. 45 on her tractor when she was struck from the rear by a car. The collision caused the woman to be thrown from the tractor.
The driver of the other car was not injured in the collision, but he was ticketed for failure to reduce speed in order to avoid an accident. The woman was transported to Carle Foundation Hospital to be treated for her serious injuries. She was also cited for not having a slow-moving vehicle sticker on her tractor.
Driving recklessly can cause serious car accidents that injure all involved, our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim.
