Benton, IL (June 20, 2024) – Six people were injured in a crash in Franklin County, Illinois, on Wednesday night, June 19.

The crash happened just after 8:00 p.m. at the South Stuyvesant Street and Summer Road intersection, just east of the Benton City limits. According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado was going east on Summer, approaching the intersection of Stuyvesant, and a 2007 Toyota Camry was going northbound when the two collided. Officials say six people were taken to area and regional hospitals; three were airlifted, and three were taken by ambulance. No additional information was available as officials investigated, though citations may be pending.

Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their loved ones. We hope for their full recovery at this time.
