BOONE COUNTY (WREX) - Two people are killed, and four others hurt, in a Friday evening crash on Route 76, just south of Caledonia Road.
The Boone County Sheriff's Department says a Chevy Cavalier was traveling south when it lost control and crossed into the northbound side and hit a Chevy SUV coming the other way.
Investigators say the driver and passenger in the Cavalier died at the scene. The four people inside the SUV all went to OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center, and were all treated for injuries, none of which were life threatening.
The cause of the crash is under investigation, but initial findings show that icy conditions may have been a factor.
These two young ladies were members of the cheerleading squad for Belvidere North High School. They were on their way to a Basketball game at their school when it appears they ran into Black Ice and lost control of their vehicle. My heart goes out to the familes of these young ladies as well as all of their friends.
