CLARK CO.— A Pennsylvania woman was transported to an area hospital after police say she struck the corner of a semi trailer on Interstate 70.
The crash took place Wednesday, March 15, at approximately 4:45 p.m., on I-70 westbound at mile marker 137 in Clark County.
Vehicles involved includes a 2006 Chevrolet Suburban, driver by Megan Horton, 24, of Fort Matilda, Pa., and a 2005 Freightliner, truck-trailer, driven by Ivan Alunovic, 44, of St. Louis, Mo.
According to police reports, Alunovic was stopped on the right shoulder of I-70 westbound, near milepost 137 with a flat tire.
Horton was traveling on I-70 near the same location. Horton veered out of their lane and towards the shoulder where Alunovic was parked.
Horton struck the left rear corner semi-trailer of Alunovic.
The impact caused Horton to begin rolling over until coming to a stop in the ditch to the north of the roadway after hitting a tree and some brush.
The passenger of Horton had to be extracted from the vehicle.
Both the driver and passenger were then transported by ambulance to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Horton was transported to Regional Hospital in Terre Haute, Ind., for treatment of her injuries.
A passenger in her vehicle, identified as 52-year-old Jeffrey Horton, also of Fort Matilda, Pa., was not injured.
