A three-vehicle accident on Interstate 74 caused two Villa Grove residents to be sent to the hospital.
According to state police officials, the accident occurred near Oakwood on Monday afternoon when the 21-year-old driver of a Ford Mustang hydroplaned because of wet road conditions.
The car then spun across the lanes of traffic before it was struck by an eastbound truck. The semi-truck then lost control and went into oncoming traffic where it flipped over to its side, spilling the contents of the trailer.
Another driver then tried to avoid hitting the semitrailer by going through the median, but the driver struck the load that fell off of the truck’s trailer. The driver and passenger in the Mustang were both transported to Carle Foundation Hospital where they were treated for non-life threatening injury and later released.
