Three injured in accident

VERMILION COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) -- A fire tanker collided with a car before reaching the Westville fire. It happened at the intersection of Route 1 and Ross Lane, in Tilton.

Three people were taken to the hospital. A Catlin firefighter says their tanker was involved in the crash, but firefighters from Kickapoo may have been inside.

Witnesses say the tanker was driving to the fire and may have been going through a red light when the other car failed to stop. That's when they collided.

Traffic is being rerouted until the scene is cleared. The condition of three people is not currently known.
