Three Beecher City residents were hospitalized Tuesday in an accident west of Effingham in Moccasin Township. The accident occurred at 6:43pm at the intersection of 1400th Avenue and 300th Street. Loose gravel and wet pavement caused a vehicle driven by 20-year-old Altamont resident Sara Flores to enter the intersection, where it was struck by a vehicle driven by 49-year-old Tony Devore of Beecher City.
Devore and two passengers in his vehicle, 42-year-old Colette Devore and 14-year-old Cheyenne Logsdon, both of Beecher City, were transported to the St. Anthony’s Hospital with non-incapacitating injuries.
Flores was ticketed for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
