Ogle County Sheriff’s deputies and Mount Morris firefighters responded to the scene at 8:17 a.m. in the 1200 block of North Ridge Road. An investigation revealed that a Ford Countour driven by Brittney Smith, 19, was northbound when the vehicle drifted off the right side of the road.

Two hurt in rollover crash on I-39

LEE COUNTY – Two Indiana residents were injured Monday in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 39.

District One state police responded to the scene at 2:14 p.m. An investigation revealed that a vehicle driven by Elizabeth J. Anderson, 29, of Fishers, Indiana, was southbound on I-39 when a truck blew a tire, causing the vehicle following the truck to swerve into Anderson’s lane. This caused Anderson to swerve and lose control in the gravel shoulder.

Her vehicle went off the roadway into the median, came back onto the roadway, and rolled several times, coming to rest on the right shoulder of I-39. Anderson and a passenger in her vehicle, James P. Stetzel, 35, of Fishers, were taken to Mendota Community Hospital by ambulance. Their conditions were unavailable Tuesday.
