Two people, a Greenup woman and a Paris man, were killed in an accident that occurred this weekend south of Greenup.
According to preliminary details being released by the Illinois State Police, the accident occurred on Illinois Route 130 at Cumberland County Road 500N at 1:04pm on Sunday. At that time, a vehicle driven by 35 year old, Jessica L Shutts, of Greenup was traveling southbound on IL 130; while a vehicle driven by 60 year old, Tony M Guffey, of New Harmony, Indiana was traveling northbound on IL 130. The details stated that Shutts lost control and crossed into the northbound lane. This caused the front of Guffey’s vehicle to strike the passenger side of Shutts’ vehicle. Both vehicles then left the road and came to a rest in the ditch on the right side of the roadway.
Shutts and her passenger, 30 year old, Anthony J Scheiner, of Paris were pronounced deceased at the scene of the accident. Guffey was taken to Sarah Bush Lincoln Hospital in Mattoon for treatment.
