Illinois residents may share the concern of many others about the number of deaths that result from accidents that are caused by vehicles crossing over the center median. Despite one’s own vigilance, the actions of other drivers can never be anticipated. Crossing over into oncoming traffic could cause a car accident with devastating consequences.
A 46-year old woman and her husband from Bartonville were traveling in an SUV on a recent Saturday evening. Authorities reported that they were westbound on a road in Peoria County when an eastbound vehicle allegedly crossed over into the westbound lanes. The reason for the apparent crossing-over is not yet determined. The woman was apparently unable to avoid a collision and smashed head-on into the other vehicle.
