UPDATE: Highway 20 has been re-opened after Sheriff’s Deputies were able to clear the scene.
Highway 20 at Farmington Way just east of Belvidere is closed after a serious three car crash.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office say that a white compact Chevy was headed westbound on Highway 20 when it crossed the center line and hit a Gray GMC Jimmy headed in the other direction. The SUV flipped and landed on a guard rail. A couple inside the vehicle was trapped and had to be extricated. Both were flown from the scene by a medical helicopter with serious injuries.
The woman driving the Chevy refused medical treatment, as did the driver of a third vehicle who was also hit hard enough to cause his vehicle to have to be towed from the scene.
An investigation is underway, and no citations or charges have been filed yet.
