DIETERICH — A Wheeler woman remains hospitalized after she was flown away from an accident scene Sunday evening.
Effingham County Sheriff's Department reported that Debra Niemerg, 56, had been westbound on 1100th Street when she apparently disobeyed the stop sign leading onto the Dieterich-Montrose blacktop, or 2300th Street, at 6:45 p.m. Sunday.
She had been airlifted to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, where a hospital spokesman said she was in good condition Tuesday.
The Niemerg vehicle collided with a vehicle driven by Timothy Jansen, 43, of Teutopolis. Jansen had been southbound on the blacktop when the collision occurred.
Jansen and passengers Karen Jansen, 43, and Mitchell Jansen, 15, were taken to St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital for treatment.
Niemerg was ticketed for failure to yield at a stop intersection.
