Highland Police and Highland EMS responded Tuesday, at 7:24 p.m., to the scene of a two-car accident at the intersection of Frank Watson Parkway and Rt. 40 in Highland.  According to the accident report, Betty L. Sappington, age 62, of Trenton, was southbound on Frank Watson Parkway and allegedly disobeyed the stop sign at the intersection with Rt. 40.  Sappington’s 2006 Mercury struck a 2005 Hyundai driven by Ashleigh C.

PAPAYAS TO BLAME FOR SALMONELLA OUTBREAK

The Illinois Department of Public Health is reporting 17 cases of Salmonella in Illinois which are linked to a multi-state outbreak believed to be associated with papayas from Mexico. Of the 17 cases in Illinois, eight hospitalizations have been reported. Agromod Produce, Inc. of McAllen, Texas is voluntarily recalling all Blondie, Yaya, Mañanita, and Tastylicious brand papayas distributed nationwide and in Canada through retail stores and wholesalers prior to July 23, 2011. Consumers who have purchased the Blondie, Yaya, Mañanita, and Tastylicious brand papayas should throw the fruit out or return it to the place of purchase.

Salmonella bacteria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms may include fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
