Ford Crown Victoria Crash


Just before 11:00AM a two-car crash occurred on Route 47 near the entrance to the Jewel-Osco shopping center. The first car that got my attention was a red Ford four-door sedan in the grass on the west side of Route 47, at the north end of the Bohn's Ace Hardware lot.

The driver had obviously missed the entrance, or maybe he had not intended to turn in at all. There was debris in the southbound lane, and the red car seemed to have left the roadway, jumped the curb, and gone through the grass to the point where it stopped.

A second car was stopped in the parking lot. It was a white Ford four-door compact with damage to both left-side doors.

The larger red sedan had front-end damage. I didn't hang around to ask how the crash happened. Both drivers were on their phones and, as I drove away, a Woodstock Police squad car was arriving from the north, with overhead lights blazing.

Any guesses to how the crash happened?
