One Injured in Washington County Crash

November 26, 2016

One person was injured in a two vehicle crash on Interstate 64 westbound in Washington County Wednesday afternoon. Illinois State Police troopers say a car driven by 24-year-old Samantha Thouvenot of O’Fallon was following behind a vehicle driven by 20-year-old Holly Gathright of Oak Grove, Kentucky. State Police say Gathright slowed down to allow a semi to merge onto the highway, and was hit from behind by the Thouvenot vehicle.

Gathright was taken to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Thouvenot and a passenger in the Gathright vehicle, 21-year-old Edward Gathright of Oak Grove, Kentucky, did not require treatment. Thouvenot was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident. The accident occurred at 4:24 PM near milepost 44.
