Two adults and two children injured in single-vehicle wreck on Interstate 57 in Marion County, Illinois
Illinois State Police say the crash happened on the southbound lanes of Interstate 57, near mile post 120, at about 7:08 a.m. According to the preliminary investigation into the crash, troopers say a 2003 Pontiac Aztec was traveling on I-57 when the driver swerved onto the right shoulder. During an interview with troopers, ISP officials say the driver reported thinking that the rear wheel came off of the car.
As a result of the swerve, investigators say the vehicle overcorrected, resulting in the Aztec skidding sideways across both lanes before rolling several times and coming to rest upright in the center median. Troopers also say this crash left two "deep gouges" in the roadway.
