Marissa two-vehicle collision injures six

A two-vehicle collision that happened last Tuesday, January 17 around 8:15 a.m. at the intersection of Illinois Route 4 and Heintz Road in Marissa resulted in six people getting injured.

According to Marissa Fire Chief Jim Perrine, a gray Ford Escape and a white GMC Acadia, which were both traveling along the highway, collided. An eight-year-old boy was ejected from the GMC SUV because of the impact of the crash. The boy was airlifted via helicopter to a hospital in East St. Louis.

Perrine said all six individuals were conscious when an emergency medical team came to provide medical assistance. St. Clair County deputies, Marissa police, and the Illinois State Police are conducting separate investigations into the matter.
