WAYNE CO., Ill. - Whereas in the 90s the going theme in Wayne County was the "weird magnet," apparently these days it's the SLEEP magnet, as yet another person has become the victim of drowsy driving on Interstate 64...along with a canine companion, who was injured in the wreck.

Illinois State Police in District 19 out of Carmi worked the wreck, which occurred this morning (Thursday, May 24) at approximately 7:23 a.m.

According to the preliminary traffic crash investigation, the driver of a white 2002 Toyota Tundra, Lindsay L. Horton, 29, of Paradise, Texas, was eastbound on Interstate 64 in rural Wayne County, when she reportedly fell asleep and left the south side of the roadway, overcorrected, and then lost control of the vehicle.

The vehicle overturned numerous times before coming to rest on all four tires.

Horton, was transported from the crash scene via Air Evac to a regional hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries. She  was not alone in the vehicle; her pet, a chocolate labrador puppy, was injured and transported by Fairfield Rural Fire Department to a local veterinarian.

ISP District 19 was assisted at the crash scene by the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department, Wayne County Ambulance Service, Fairfield Rural Fire Department, Air Evac, and Rick’s Towing Service.
