One person was injured in a three-car crash outside of Du Quoin, IL on Friday when a vehicle failed to stop.

According to the Illinois State Police, Michael Allabastro, 36, Pinckneyville, IL, was driving southbound on US Route 51, south of Du Quoin, followed by Jaclyn Page, 29, New Douglas, IL and Jo Ann Siefert, 79, Du Quoin, IL.

Approximately one mile south of IL Route 14, Allabastro slowed to turn east into a private driveway.
