PEKIN, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

A Pekin man received a citation for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident after a crash in the Interstate 474 construction zone. 

The Illinois State Police said Shawn Sarver, 28, of Pekin failed to stop in time to avoid an accident on the westbound Shade-Lohmann bridge in Tazewell County. He rear-ended a car, causing a four-vehicle chain reaction, police said. 

Two people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. 

Traffic was slowed on the bridge due to ongoing construction. Lanes were briefly closed on the bridge. All lanes have since reopened.
