Two Escape From Fairbury Jail
It was a short-lived jail break for two Jefferson County inmates. The sheriff's office says the two men, both from Fairbury, overpowered the jailer, took her keys and left in her car. It happened Tuesday morning. Officers used a patrol car as a rolling roadblock to slow the suspects, but as they attempted to pass the patrol car, they hit it and went into a ditch. The two then tried to flee but were captured soon after.
