According to the Patrol,  a 2001 Ford Taurus driven by Adrienne Zimmerman, 30, of Winfield, traveled off the right side of the roadway. Zimmerman overcorrected, traveled back across Hwy. 79,  and off the left side of the roadway. The vehicle then struck an embankment and overturned, ejecting Zimmerman.

A 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Katie Borders, 21, of Silex, was westbound on I-70 when she swerved to avoid an unknown vehicle that had turned into the path of the Grand Cherokee. The Cherokee traveled off the left side of the roadway and struck the median wall.

Borders and a passenger, Jason Mayes, 25, of Elsberry, were both transported by ambulance to St. Joseph Health Center in St. Charles. Their injuries were listed as moderate. Neither was using their seat belts at the time of the crash.

The third crash was at 12:40 a.m. Nov. 11 in Lincoln County on Carter Road north of Hance Lane.
