Six injured in head-on crash involving Corrections van on Illinois 29

The accident occurred as a 15-year-old Taylorville girl was driving north on the highway a little after 8 a.m. Her Ford SUV crossed the centerline for some reason, and struck a southbound van head-on that was driven by Scott E. Baxter, 44, of Pontiac, Illinois State police said.


Type: Car Accident
People Involved: 
Scott E. Baxter
Lori L. Thomas
Amanda M. Vanostran
Winona R. Demain
Illinois 29


The following is a more detailed account of what happened.  The driver was a 15 year female (name not listed).  Read the article for more information.  The Driver of the van, Scott, is a friend of mine who is in critical condition right now and not doing well.  At the minimum, I hope the 15 year old will NOT be allowed to get her license until after she turns 21.  I alos hope her mother, Lori Thomas, gets into trouble.  Evidently, she was not paying attention to the studen driver.  Mostly, I pray for the recovery of Scott and the other victims of this avoidable accident.
