Two People Injured in Head-on Crash in Williamson County



Two people were injured in a crash on Route 148 after a driver fell asleep at the wheel. Yesterday afternoon Ryan Davis of Wood River was traveling north across the Crab Orchard Lake Bridge when he fell asleep at the wheel. Davis veered into the southbound lane of traffic and directly into the path of a car driven by Janice Ellet of Carterville. Ellet struck Davis’ vehicle head on causing major damage to both vehicles. Both drivers received minor injuries and Davis was taken to Heartland Regional Hospital in Marion while Ellet was taken to Herrin Hospital.
