JEFFERSON COUNTY, IL — Two Missouri residents were injured in a crash on Interstate 57 in Jefferson County, Illinois on Monday.

Around 6:20 p.m., Illinois State Police were called to a crash on I-57 northbound near mile marker 83. This is near the exit to Ina.

Troopers say 70-year-old Frank Yonce of Eureka, Missouri was driving when he experienced a sudden and severe medical issue.

His car left the road, went through the median, and onto the shoulder of I-57 southbound. The car then went back through the median, hit several bridge support crash barrels, overturned, and stopped upside down.

Frank and his passenger, 67-year-old Linda Yonce, were taken to a local hospital. Frank was later flown to a St. Louis hospital for further treatment. He is being treated with life threatening injuries.

Linda is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
