CUMBERLAND CO., Ill. - A crash on Interstate 70 in Cumberland County sent two from Las Vegas to Carle Hospital in Urbana.

Illinois State Police in District 12 Effingham said the single-vehicle crash occurred at 6:07 p.m. Friday evening, June 14, 2019.

Preliminary investigative details indicate that a black 2003 Ford 4-door sedan being driven by Chene Durley, 56, of Las Vegas, was traveling eastbound on Interstate 70 near Milepost 114 in Cumberland County, when the driver’s side rear tire abruptly ruptured.

As a result of the tire failure, Durley lost control of the Ford sedan, which then skidded off of the roadway and entered the median. It then rolled over several times and came to rest on its passenger’s side. 

Durley was transported to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, and a passenger, Initia Durley, 60, also of Vegas, was airlifted to same.

The vehicle was towed from the scene. No charges have been issued.
