The names of the drivers in that scary crash north of Utica Thursday have been released. LaSalle County Sheriff's office say 53-year old Tammie Nelson of Mendota was eastbound on County Highway 33 and failed to stop. Her vehicle struck a northbound truck driven by Michael Denyes of LaSalle.

Both went to IVCH for injuries. One truck ended up on its top in the ditch.  The other was a few feet away upright in a field pond.  There were no tickets issued. The accident occurred around 9:30am.
