One is taken to the hospital for minor injuries after a two vehicle traffic crash along I-74, near milepost 181, the afternoon of Thursday, February 2, 2017 around 12:27 P.M.
According to a recent press release from Illinois State Police District 10, preliminary details indicate Ayika Tshimanga, 21, of Champaign, IL (unit 1) was entering I-74 on the eastbound entrance ramp from Prospect Avenue when she lost control of the vehicle coming down the ramp and traveled across lanes. She then struck Senad Dedovic, 33, of Woodbury, CT (unit 2) who was also travelling eastbound in the center lane.
Due to unit 2 driving a truck tractor-semi, unit 1 went underneath as she lost control, then bounced off the semi causing unit 1 to roll over into the right ditch. After coming to a stop, unit 1 was able to get out of her vehicle, while unit 2 was able to pull over to the right shoulder and remain uninjured.
Unit 1 was then later transported to a nearby hospital and treated for injuries and has been charged with a citation for improper lane usage.
