The Pantagraph reports that Bloomington resident and Normal Community West High School student Olivia “Livi” Sonetz was seriously injured in a two vehicle crash that occurred in Normal on Tuesday night.
The accident the 17 year old senior was involved in happened at approximately 6:25 PM at Mitsubishi Motorway and Raab Road.
Authorities with the Illinois State Police say 23 year old Mitchel Mohr was proceeding south on Mitsubishi Motorway in a pickup when he encountered the intersection with Raab Road. At the same time, Sonetz was traveling west on Raab in a sedan and was idling at the intersection for a stop light.
When the light turned green for Sontez the two vehicles ran into each other.
The ISP say Mohr’s vehicle entered the intersection illegally. As a result he was cited for disobeying a stop light, failing to reduce speed, speeding and failing to wear a seat belt. He was received by Advocate BroMenn Medical Center in Normal for unknown injuries.
Sonetz was taken to Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria for her critical injuries.
