On Monday, June 13th, a car drove through the backyards of several homes in Bradley, Illinois. The driver was sent to the hospital after she was extricated from the car by the fire department.

Sonja Grace, 67, of Herscher was southbound on I-57 when she lost control of her car. She hit the front end of a truck before veering towards the right into three backyards on the 500 block of Pierce Avenue in Bradley, finally stopping when her car hit the deck on one house. No one was in any of the three yards at the time of the accident.

Grace was removed from her car and taken to Provena St. Mary’s Hospital for minor injuries while the driver of the truck reported no injuries. The state police are investigating the accident.
