Snow causes 3 car crash on I-57, 2 sent to hospital
The snowy interstate in southern Illinois was the cause of a Saturday night crash in Jefferson County.
Illinois State police say three cars were involved in a wreck that sent two people to the hospital. The driver of the first car was heading northbound on I-57 near mile-marker 95 when he lost control of his vehicle and hit a car in the right hand lane.
The impact caused the first driver to travel back into the left lane when it hit another car. The driver of the first car sustained major injuries and was sent to a hospital in St. Louis. A 6 year-old passenger in the car sustained minor injuries and was also taken to a hospital.
No one else was hurt.
