Its always good to pay close attention to your surroundings while driving. There are so many distractions for drivers out there. Cell phone use, loud music, noisy kids and even other bad drivers can mean the difference between getting somewhere safely or having to sit on the side of the road waiting on the police after an accident.

According to, Tuesday night a female driver was heading west on Clifford avenue through Loves Park and failed to stop at a stop sign. When she coasted through the stop sign she struck another vehicle that was heading north on East drive. The woman who originally ran the stop signs car ended up in a Loves Park home after she lost control.

No one in the home was injured thankfully but the drivers of both cars involved in the accident sustained injuries and were taken to the hospital. As of now the Loves Park Police Department is investigating to see if alcohol played a part in the incident. No names have been released at this time.
