Video: Accident closes Hwy 1 this afternoon –


At about 2 p.m. today there was a two vehicle accident south of Paris in Edgar County on Illinois Route 1 near the Rt 1 and East 400th Road intersection.

This was within the IDOT resurfacing Highway 1 project (from Paris to Oliver) and right in front of the IDOT flagger who said she saw the accident.

A woman in the Red car rear-ended a tractor-trailer.

Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene, minor injuries to the driver of the car.

Route 1 is open to traffic again.
