Genoa couple in good condition after head-on crash

STERLING – One week after their SUV was crashed into head-on, a Genoa couple are in good condition in a Rockford hospital.

Paul A. Alsup 57, of Genoa, was going east in a 2014 Honda CRV on U.S. Route 30 about noon Jan. 19 when a 17-year-old boy lost control of his westbound 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix, which spun into the eastbound lane and hit the Honda head-on, a news release from the Illinois State Police said.

Alsup and his wife, Cynthia, had to be freed from the SUV, and after being transferred from Mercy Medical Center in Clinton, Iowa, staff at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford on Saturday morning said the couple are in good condition.

The teen was cited for driving in the wrong lane, and he and his three passengers were unhurt.
