An accident on Route 13 and Spillway Road Thursday morning sent two people to the hospital. According to Illinois State Police, just before 10am, a car driven by Florence Weller of Carterville was traveling westbound on 13 when she ran a red light, and broad-sided a pickup truck driving south onto Spillway Road, driven by Michael Yates of Anna. Both were transported to Memorial Hospital in Carbondale with major injuries. Weller was cited for failing to reduce speed to avoid a crash, and disobeying a traffic control device.
