An Alto Pass woman and her child were taken to hospitals with serious injuries after their vehicle was hit by a tractor-trailer on Wednesday morning in Union County.
Illinois State Police said a Freightliner truck hauling a trailer took Exit 30 from Interstate 57 toward Illinois 146 and did not stop at the stop sign. The semitrailer, driven by 49-year-old Derek Adams, hit a 2009 Scion XD driven by Gylian Moore, 35, of Alto Pass.
Moore and her passenger, described only as her child by Illinois State Police, were taken to out-of-state hospitals at about 11 a.m. Wednesday.
Adams was ticketed for failure to yield at a stop intersection.
