Western Illinois Teens Overturn Car
Two Western Illinois teens were injured late yesterday afternoon when the car they were in went out of control about a half mile east of the Great River Bridge on Highway-34.
18-year-old driver Vince Durham of Alpha struck the center concrete barrier and the car overturned. The passenger was 19-year-old Zach Ortega of Opheim. Both boys were taken to Great River Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Police say both were wearing seat belts, but Durham was ticketed for driving too fast for conditions.
