QUINCY — A Quincy woman was seriously injured in a Friday afternoon crash north of Quincy.

A 2016 Chevy Cruze driven by Stacy Meyer, 49, of Quincy, was stopped on Illinois 96, just north of U.S. 24, facing south just before 3:30 p.m. The Adams County Sheriff’s Department said Meyer attempted to make a U-turn and pulled into traffic.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Miller was uninjured in the crash. Adams County EMS took Meyer to Blessing Hospital in Quincy after she suffered serious injuries.

Meyer was cited for DUI (pending lab results), driving with a suspended registration, failure to yield and unlawful transportation of cannabis after a preliminary investigation of the crash. Tri-Township Fire and Adams County EMS provided assistance at the scene.
