OREGON – Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn said Tuesday that his department is still investigating a head-on crash that claimed the lives of two Ogle County women on Thanksgiving Day.

Harn, who is waiting for the report from the accident reconstructionist, said it does not appear alcohol or illegal drugs were a factor.

Leslie A. Wallace, 28, of Oregon, and Christina L. Nave, 31, of Mount Morris, died at the scene of the crash in the 1000 block of West Pines Road, east of the intersection with Gale Road.

In a news release the day after, Harn said a Honda Civic driven by Wallace was eastbound on Pines around 9:45 a.m. when it struck the westbound Dodge Neon driven by Nave.

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
