MCCRACKEN Co, Ky - Deputies reponded to a two-vehicle injury accident on I-24 West earlier that sent one to the hospital.

Tammy Gunther, 42 was traveling westbound when she rear-ended a car driven by Cody Burk, 29.

After Gunther struck Burk's car, Gunther swerved and struck the concrete divider before swerving right again and coming to rest against the guardrail. 

Gunther was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

The collision is suspected to have been a result of medical issues.

The investigation is still ongoing, and the one-lane restriction has since been reopened upon completion of investigation and cleanup.
