Two vehicle accident sends two to hospital

NORMAL (WEEK) – A two-vehicle accident just before 1 p.m. today closed Fort Jesse Road and Veterans Parkway in Normal.

One vehicle, a red pickup truck was rolled on its side, forcing Normal firefighters to stabilize the truck and use extrication tools to remove the roof to extricate the occupants, according to fire department public information officer Matt Swaney.

The two occupants of the truck were transported to Advocate BroMenn with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.

Occupants of the second vehicle were not injured and refused transport.

The majority of the scene was cleared by 2 p.m.
