Another weekend of snowy and slippery roads sent a 23-year-old Princeton woman to the hospital.
According to the Bureau County Sheriff’s Office, Amber Freehan was driving on Backbone Rd. Sunday morning when she lost control of her vehicle, entered a steep embankment and hit a tree.
Freehan’s car was so badly damaged that Princeton Fire and EMS had to extricate her from the vehicle.
After being removed from the car Freehan was lifeflighted by helicopter to OSF St. Francis in Peoria.
Bureau County Sheriff John Thompson said although not confirmed it appears that the accident was caused by slippery road conditions.
Freehan’s condition is unknown at this time.
