STERLING – Two people were treated at the hospital Wednesday after being involved in a car accident just before noon in downtown Sterling.
Police say that Natasha A. Schillaci, 28, of Lyndon was driving west on Sixth Street when she ran a stop sign at the Locust Street intersection. A car driven by Arthur G. Barnhart III, 73, of Rock Falls, who was headed north on Locust, struck her car on the driver’s side.
Schillaci had to be removed from her car by Sterling and Rock Falls fire crews, and both she and Barnhart were taken to CGH Medical Center for treatment of injuries.
Schillaci was ticketed on a charge of disobeying a stop sign. Neither hers nor Barnhart’s condition was available Wednesday afternoon.
