There were different times on written reports received from the
Illinois State Police. The first said the accident was at 7:45 p.m.
A correction was sent later saying it occurred at 7:10 p.m. and
finally 7:15 p.m.
A reader who wished to remain anonymous actually
heard the crash and called 911 immediately. She said the time was
close to 7:14 p.m. She also said that two different drivers stopped
within less than a minute of the crash when they came upon it. The
emergency teams were there within five to six minutes of the crash.
She wanted family and friends to know this and added that the
emergency response was as immediate as it possibly could have been.
Our apologies for the misinformation and any added grief that
this may have caused family and friends.
