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.

Ms. Horton was cited for No Valid Driver’s License, Improper Lane Usage, Failure to Wear Seatbelt and Failure for Passenger to Wear Seatbelt.
