A head-on collision in southern La Salle County sent both drivers to the hospital.

The La Salle County Sheriff's Office says 63-year-old Thomas Kenny of Palos Park was east bound on Route 17 east of Wenona Tuesday night when he drifted into the other lane of traffic. His pickup hit an SUV driven by 25-year-old Benjamin Zulz of Washburn. Kenny was life-flighted for medical treatment while Zulz was taken to St. Margaret's Health-Peru.

Kenny was ticketed for DUI. Nobody else was involved in the wreck. It happened just after 9:30 Tuesday night.
