Road Closed

Road closed — One person was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries after a two-vehicle crash on Route 100/67 at 6th Street.  According to investigating Beardstown Police a pickup driven by Janet McGovern of Bluff Springs was traveling south on Route 67, when a car driven by Yves Kanangila Kalambwa attempted a left turn in front of the oncoming McGovern vehicle. The impact caused the McGovern vehicle to come to rest on the guardrails on the west side of the intersection. Route 67 north was closed for some time while ambulance personnel treated the vehicle occupants for their injuries and vehicles were cleared from the scene.  Mr. Kalambwa was cited by Beardstown Police for driving under the influence of alcohol.
