Several teens hurt in head-on crash


Troopers say several teens got hurt in a three-car accident in McDonough County. It happened on Illinois Route 9 at County Road 750 East.

Illinois State Police troopers say 17-year-old Ian Taylor stopped abruptly to avoid hitting an animal. Troopers say 17-year-old David Caldwell was following him and veered left to avoid hitting Taylor's car, but then went into the left lane and hit a third vehicle head-on.

Troopers say two juvenile passengers had to be cut from the vehicle and air-lifted, while others were taken to McDonough District Hospital and later released. 

Troopers say everyone was wearing seatbelts and alcohol was not believed to be a factor.
