A young girl was seriously injured in a crash southeast of Wenona.
Deputies were called yesterday morning just after 11 for a two-vehicle wreck at the interchange of North 7th and East 11th Roads. Investigators say 28-year-old Vickey Meglich of Streator ran a stop sign before crashing with the vehicle of 25-year-old Taylor Retoff of Wenona. An 8-year-old girl riding with Meglich was flown to OSF in Peoria. Meglich meanwhile was taken to OSF in Streator.
Retoff and a passenger of hers, 23-year-old Ashley Vangorsten of Minonk were both taken to OSF in Pontiac. A 9-year-old boy also involved in the crash was released without injuries. The wreck remains under investigation by the La Salle County Sheriff’s Department.
