One person was killed and two children were injured Tuesday afternoon after a white SUV and semi collided in a two-vehicle accident at Bell Road and Route 6.
A toddler was airlifted to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove and an infant was taken by ambulance to Provena St. Joesph's Medical Center in Joliet, according to Channahon Police Chief Joe Pena.
Around 6 p.m., the Channahon Fire Department still was trying to extricate the mother from the SUV, Pena said.
Pena said the families have been notified. The victims' identities have not been released, but it is known that the deceased and injured are from Channahon, Pena said.
Bill Cooper of Channahon, a witness to the crash, said he broke a window in order to rescue the infant who had to be cut out of the car seat.
"There were no scratches, just some bruises," Cooper said.
Cooper said he was unable to get the toddler out before the fire department arrived.
The semi truck driver for Estes Transportation is from the Bloomington terminal.
