Effingham, IL - 2 Hospitalized Following Hit-And-Run On I-70

Effingham, IL (November 27, 2019) - Local authorities reported a hit-and-run collision near Effingham, Illinois that left two people injured. The accident took place in I-70, about three miles east of Effingham. The crash occurred on Sunday, November 24th, at around 2:06 a.m. 

The two injured parties have been identified as Cynthia Jean Jennings, 49, of Indianapolis, and Carman Elizabeth Hoehn Camp, 43, of Atoka, Tennessee. The victims were riding in a Silver 2018 Elantra and were reportedly slowing down to avoid a disabled vehicle. They were then struck by a tractor-trailer that fled the scene. Both injured parties were taken to St. Anthony Hospital for the treatment of sustained injuries.

A third passenger was uninjured in the crash. An investigation into the crash is currently underway.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Illinois Hit-and-Run Accidents

Thumbnail image for PFMstock6-59.jpgDrivers often leave the scene of a crash because they fear the consequences of being found liable for the collision. This could leave injured parties without access to necessary medical treatment. Fleeing the scene of a crash is a crime in Illinois.

Despite the fact that committing a hit-and-run is illegal, hit-and-runs happen with alarming frequency. An estimated 682,000 hit-and-runs are reported each year in the United States. These crashes can leave you with serious injuries that require ongoing medical treatment.
