Katie Heinz, a reporter at WICS, is in serious condition after a three-vehicle crash last night in Springfield, IL.

Heinz was driving a vehicle belonging to Springfield ABC-affiliate WICS, according to the State Journal-Register. She was rear-ended by a car behind her, and the impact propelled her into the opposing lane of traffic, where her vehicle was struck again.

Heinz joined WICS in 2008. She was one of two people taken to the hospital in the incident; the other has been treated and released.
