My cousin texted me a photo of the accident at 4:34 pm.

Yep, I drove by at 4:25 and it was already stuck.  Not 5:30.   Maybe with the digital subscription they'll be able to afford clocks in the newsroom.

Thanks for your comment. When we first called them, Champaign police told us the crash took place at 5:30 p.m. We just asked the dispatcher to look up the original call, and they have modified the time to 3:46 p.m. We have adjusted the story accordingly.
