WAYNE COUNTY, Indiana — One person was injured in a wrong-way crash Wednesday on Interstate 70 near Richmond.
A red Honda CR-V, driven by 23-year-old Cassidy King of Richmond was headed west in the eastbound lanes when she collided with a semi tractor-trailer, driven by 54-year-old Michael Bender of Middletown, according to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Ofice.
Both vehicles were traveling east along I-70 near the 154 Mile Marker when the Honda pulled onto the shoulder, made a U-turn and began driving west in the eastbound lanes before colliding with the semi, according to the sheriff’s office.
The eastbound lanes were closed for a short period following the crash.
King was taken to Reid Health in Richmond for non-life-threatening injuries. Bender reported no injuries.
