Five were injured after a crash that occurred in Marion County on IL-37, approximately .41 miles South of Kell Road Monday afternoon.
Dawn E. Harris, of Louisville, was travelling south on IL-37 when a vehicle driven by Steven R. Fritschle, of Olney, backed out a personal driveway directly in front of Harris causing a collision. After being hit in the rear end, Fritschle’s vehicle came to rest blocking the southbound lane on IL-37. Harris’ vehicle landed in the northbound lane.
Harris, and four passengers, Stephanie A. Holt of Dix and 3 juveniles ages 3, 2, and 9 were transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia for treatment.
Fritschle is charged with failure to yield.
