PEORIA COUNTY, Ill. -- A local woman lands in the hospital after almost getting into a head-on car crash.
Denni Marquet of Pekin was driving east on Route 24 near Bartonville when she crossed the double-yellow line into the westbound lane.
Peoria resident Mary Etherton saw Marquet cross the line and swerved to avoid hitting her head-on.
But Marquet's car did hit the back of Etherton's car.
Etherton was taken to Unity-Point Health Methodist and was treated and released.
Marquet was cited for improper lane usage and not having insurance.
