Local News

ST. DAVID, Ill. (WMBD) — (UPDATE) — Authorities said Route 100 near St. David in Fulton County has reopened.

Two car crashes have closed Route 100 near St. David in Fulton County.

A post on the Fulton County ESDA page said the highway is shut down from west of Route 78 to Wright Road west of Bryant. Authorities said this will likely be a lengthy closure.

First responders tackled the single-vehicle car crash to a utility pole, which happened at approximately 9:15 a.m. The crash reportedly caused downed power lines.

While working the original crash, Assistant Fire Chief Austin Rhodes said a separate truck broke through barricades and struck a Buckheart fire truck.

He said the driver of the first car was checked and released by emergency personnel. The driver of the truck was transported to Graham Hospital.

“We see it all the time, we all follow emergency medical platforms,” Rhodes said. “We all follow emergency services pages, and we do really just frequently see it just online. This is truly not a totally uncommon thing, but around here, this is the first I am aware of, especially within our department.”

Fulton County Sheriff’s Office said that stretch of road is still closed.
