SANGAMON COUNTY – State troopers were on the scene of a crash at around 1:25 AM on Sunday, February 14 where they believe drugs were involved.

Illinois State Police report a Ford Fusion was traveling east on Interstate 72 near milepost 113, when the driver lost control on the snowy pavement. This caused the vehicle to slide off the south side of the roadway and overturn in the south ditch.

Troopers say the 25-year-old Springfield woman and her three passengers were transported to Memorial Medical Center and treated for minor injuries.

The driver has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs and other traffic violations. An investigation is pending.
