A Sutter, Illinois woman is recovering Wednesday morning after a semi-truck crashed into her car in Hancock County.
Illinois State Police say Elaine Mathewson, 75, was stalled with her blinkers on, on Illinois Route 336 when a semi driven by Jeffery Drew, 40, of Quincy tried to pass her.
The semi's front bumper rear ended Mathewson's car sending it into the passing lane and center median ditch.
Mathewson was injured during the crash and taken to Memorial Hospital in Carthage, Illinois.
