A man's decision to back up on the highway is the apparent cause of an accident last week. On Friday (10-03), 33 year-old Michael A. Buehlman of Godfrey was driving east on Route 104. He reportedly told police he realized he had missed his turn, and began backing up on the highway. Cops say he backed into a vehicle driven by 50 year-old Douglas Leach of Auburn, who was also headed east.
No injuries were reported. Leach's vehicle had to be towed from the scene.
