MACON — No one was injured in a two-vehicle crash at U.S. 51 and West Andrews Street Road in Macon on Wednesday morning, Sgt. Ron Atkins of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office said.
The crash happened about 7:40 a.m. A 59-year-old man from Cherry, Illinois, was driving a pickup truck pulling a camper on West Andrews Street Road. He was traveling eastbound and attempted to turn north, but struck a semitruck driven by a 59-year-old Findlay man when crossing the southbound lanes of U.S. 51, Atkins said.
The pickup truck and camper overturned, Atkins said. The pickup driver was cited for failure to yield at a stop intersection.
Traffic was diverted for at least an hour after the crash as the sheriff’s office and emergency personnel worked in the area.
This is the latest crash at the intersection, which state lawmakers and county officials have long identified as hazardous. Phil Jacobs Sr., 80, of Pana died Sept. 12 from injuries he suffered in a two-vehicle crash on Sept. 4 at this intersection.
