Five injured in crash on I-57 just south of Farina

July 7, 2017

FAYETTE COUNTY — An accident Wednesday morning on Interstate 57 just south of Farina sent three individuals the hospital for treatment of injuries.

The accident occurred at 7:15 a.m. on southbound I-57 about 3 miles south of Farina, around the Fayette/Marion County line.

According to the Illinois State Police, a vehicle driven by 56-year-old Clara Rojas-Manjarrez of Georgetown, Texas was traveling south on I-57, when the vehicle apparently blew a tire and swerved into the guard rail on the left side of the roadway.

The vehicle then skidded right, bouncing off the guard rail across the southbound lanes. The driver then overcorrected to the left and the vehicle began to skid back across the southbound lanes and overturned, landing in the grass median.

The driver along with 2 passengers, an 8 year old female from Waukegan, Illinois and George Cedillo of Georgetown, Texas were all taken to Salem Hospital for treatment of injuries.
