Two vehicles collided northwest of Effingham Tuesday morning.

The crash happened at 10:18am along Illinois Routes 32-33 northwest of Nazarene Church Road.  Effingham County sheriff's deputies report a pickup truck driven by 28-year-old Seth J. Wilson of Effingham struck the right rear of a gravity flow wagon being pulled by a pickup truck driven by 60-year-old Kenneth Kreke of Mason.  The impact caused the gravity flow wagon to come off the running gears on which it was being pulled and struck the rear of the pickup truck driven by Kreke.

The box of the wagon ended up in the right lane of travel while Wilson's pickup truck ended up in the north ditch.

Wilson was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid the crash.
