Centreville, IL (KSDK) - A person was taken to an area hospital after being involved in a six car pile-up as a result of ducks wandering onto the road.

The accident happened Monday just after 8:30 a.m. on Illinois Route 15. Six cars were heading eastbound when the ducks crossed. The lead driver stopped suddenly to avoid hitting the ducks, which caused the chain reaction accident.

Five men and one woman were involved in the accident.

The driver of the second vehicle, an 18-year-old from Cahokia, suffered only minor injuries.

All of the drivers were wearing their seatbelts.

The duck and ducklings were not hurt.
