Area police had their hands full on Wednesday with multiple accidents sending people to local hospitals.
Three people were hurt when someone fired shots from a car on Stevenson Drive. The shots hit a woman on the street, wounding her in the foot… and struck a car which collided with another vehicle.
Two people sustained injuries from that crash, although they were not hit by gunfire.
Shortly after that, the sheriff’s office reported an accident with injuries at Old Jacksonville and Archer Elevator Roads, but had no immediate additional details.
And a truck driver was injured when his rig overturned as he was attempting to exit I-55 at the Route 54/Sangamon Avenue exit.
It took crews several hours to clear that wreckage.
