Head-on collision west of Champaign being investigated
CHAMPAIGN — Four people were treated and released from Carle Foundation Hospital Saturday afternoon following a head-on collision between two cars west of Champaign.
Champaign County sheriff's Sgt. Will Davis said the crash happened at 2:18 p.m. in the 200 block of North Rising Road.
Craig Stinson, 61, of the 700 block of South James Street in Champaign was driving his Ford Focus south when, for an unknown reason, his car crossed over the center line and hit a northbound Honda Civic driven by Wei Chen, 33, of the 300 block of Capitol Street, Savoy.
Chen had three passengers in his car, all of the same address: Hsiu Ting Huang, 33; Chloe Chen, 4, and Mason Chen, 1.
Davis said all the people involved received minor injuries. A nurse at Carle reported everyone was treated and released. She said it appeared that Chloe Chen did not require treatment although Davis said she was taken to the hospital. Bondville firefighters also responded to help.
Davis said a sheriff's accident reconstruction specialist will continue to investigate the crash.
Stinson was given a ticket for improper lane usage, Davis said.
