LaSalle County authorities are asking for your help in a hit and run accident near Tonica. The LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office says a nine-year old child was walking with family members southwest of Tonica yesterday afternoon at around 4:00. The child was struck by a white car being driven by a man believed to be in his late teens to late twenties. The driver and vehicle fled the scene. Anyone with information on the driver or vehicle is asked to call the LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office or your local police.
The Bureau County Dental Clinic is closed to new adult medicaid patients- at least for the time being. At last night’s Bureau County Board meeting, Health Department Committee Chairperson, Loretta Volker, read a letter from Diana Rawlings of the Health Department. In it she expresses concern for the lack of adult dental services for people on Medicaid. Children are better covered and the department has tried to keep a balance between the number of adults and children served in order to preserve financial stability. But, Rawlings says, due to the economy, more adults are seeking appointments at the clinic. In response to this situation, the clinic is temporarily not accepting new adult patients. It will, however, continue to see current adult patients and children. The situation will be re-evaluated in July.
The investigation continues into the skydiving death of a suburban Chicago man near Ottawa. The accident happened Sunday at Skydive Chicago’s Dayton facility. According to the LaSalle County coroner's office, 30-year old Karthik Balakrishman of Schaumburg was skydiving when witnesses say he went into several radical turns, lost control and crashed into the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene, about a mile-and-a-half east of the facility from which he took off. Dayton is about 5 miles northeast of Ottawa.
