Accident near Bishop Hills sends one to an area hospital

A near head-on accident happened Thursday on Boys Ranch Road around 2:30.

Troopers say a white van was driving south when it crossed into the north bound lane.

The driver of a white Cadillac tried to swerve out of the way but the front right lights of both vehicles hit, sending the Cadillac careening into the embankment.

The driver of the Cadillac was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses at the scene tell Newschannel 10 the white van had almost run them off the road shortly before the accident.
