One woman is in the hospital after a single-vehicle crash in Interstate 57 Saturday.

45-year old Monica Acree of Grand Chain was taken to a local hospital after a crash just before 1 pm Saturday in the northbound lane at mile marker 45.

Acree was reportedly merging onto 57 from IL Rt. 148 and hit a patch of ice, causing the vehicle to slide, before Acree over-corrected herself and caused the vehicle to roll over into the right shoulder.

A 1-year old child was in the vehicle, however the child was not hurt. Acree was cited for driving with a suspended license.
