Three people were injured in a two-vehicle crash on Christmas Eve at the intersection of Third Street and Fayette Avenue. Effingham city police reported a vehicle driven by Deborah K. Willenborg, 46, of Champaign struck a vehicle driven by Kevin L. Gillespie, 50, of Effingham at 10:09 p.m.

Patsy M. Wills, 57, of Champaign, a passenger in the Willenborg vehicle, was taken by private vehicle to St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital, Effingham.

Two passengers in the Gillespie vehicle, Cindy L. Gillespie, 50, and Gina L. Gillespie, 16, both of Effingham, were also injured. Cindy was not transported for treatment at the time of the wreck, but Gina was transported by ambulance to St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital, Effingham. No condition reports were available, because the hospital does not release that information.

Willenborg was ticketed for disobeying a traffic control device.
