Two people were injured in a crash in Fayette County over the weekend.

The crash was reported at 4:56pm Saturday along Illinois 185 near St. Peter.  State police say 20-year-old Gavin Eckiss of Lafayette, Indiana, failed to yield to traffic and struck a vehicle driven by 44-year-old Anthony Harpster of St. Peter.

Eckiss was cited for failure to yield, no seat belt, DUI, illegal consumption of liquor by a minor, failure to notify the Secretary of State of an address change, and driving on a revoked license.

Two passengers in the Harpster vehicle...44-year-old Shelly Harpster and 16-year-old Alexis Harpster, both of St. Peter...were injured and were taken to St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham for treatment.
