STERLING – One of two people injured in a two-car accident Wednesday in Sterling was still in the hospital Thursday.

Natasha A. Schillaci, 28, of Lyndon, was listed in stable condition at CGH Medical Center. The driver of the other car involved, Arthur G. Barnhart III, 73, of Rock Falls, was treated and released.

Schillaci was driving west on Sixth Street just before noon when she ran a stop sign at Locust Street, police said. Barnhart, 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.

Shillaci was ticketed on a charge of disobeying a stop sign.
