Wednesday afternoon turned tragic for a group of teens from Montgomery County, Illinois. The horrific incident happened on Route 48 when a vehicle with three teenagers were heading north near the town of, Raymond, and their car veered off the side of the road. The driver of that vehicle then overcorrected, and thus crossed the center line into oncoming traffic in the southbound lane. As a result the carload of teens hit another vehicle heading south on its passenger side.
Sadly, the fatalities and major injuries lied in the vehicle containing the teens. Tragically one of the teens in the car was killed instantly upon impact, and another was rushed to a nearby hospital only to later die of their injuries. The third was airlifted to a hospital with major injuries as well. Luckily the driver of the vehicle which was hit was hurt, but didn’t have any life threatening injuries. No names have yet been released of the victims, and a further investigation into the vehicle accident is pending by Illinois State Police.
