An Earlville police officer was seriously injured in a crash near the intersection of East 9th Road and U.S. Highway 34 Saturday night, during the pursuit of a fleeing Chicago woman, who has later arrested by LaSalle County sheriff’s deputies after she crashed her vehicle north of Mendota. The officer was airlifted to a Rockford Hospital in serious but stable condition, according to Earlville Police Chief Darin Crask. As of Sunday afternoon, the name of the officer had not been released. More details will be posted as they become available, and the full story will be in the April 16 Earlville Post.
