WAYNE COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

The ISP responded to a single-vehicle crash with injuries on I-64 Westbound in Wayne County, Illinois on Saturday, October 1.

The crash happened around 1:15 p.m. Saturday. According to the preliminary traffic crash investigations, Pamela R. Martin, 56, of Fairfield, Illinois, was driving a 2004 Dodge Dakota westbound on I-64 in the passing lane.
