Illinois Woman Injured In I-24 Crash
An Illinois woman was transported following a two vehicle accident Saturday night on Interstate 24 in Christian County. State Police say 22-year old Andrew Thompson, of Fort Campbell, was eastbound on I-24, near the 73-mile marker, close to the Gracey-Newstead exit, when an unidentified vehicle swerved in front of him. Thompson braked to avoid colliding with the unidentified vehicle, and was then struck in the rear by a vehicle driven by 72-year old Bluma Marder, of Highland Park Illinois.
Both vehicles came to final rest on the right shoulder of the roadway. Marder was transported to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for treatment following the crash, which occurred around 8:06pm.
