One person was seriously injured in a two vehicle accident that occurred at the intersection of Berta Road and Reed Road near Coal City around ten this morning.

The Grundy County Sheriff’s Department said a woman driving a vehicle was stopped at Berta and then drove into the intersection when she was struck by a truck.

The woman was airlifted to Good Samaritan Hospital with life threatening injuries. Meanwhile, two other people suffered minor injuries.

The Coal City Fire Protection District reported that Reed Road between Broadway and Berta as well as Berta between Will and Spring Roads was closed for several hours so the sheriff’s department could reconstruct the accident, which remains under investigation.
