Five injured in accident on Interstate 57

MARION COUNTY — Several people were injured after a man driving a semi truck crashed into two Illinois Department of Transportation vehicles on Interstate 57 Wednesday morning.

Police responded to a three-vehicle accident at 9:59 a.m. Wednesday at the 107 mile marker on I-57 north bound, about one mile north of the Marion County/Jefferson County line.

IDOT workers were parked in the right lane of I-57 north bound doing road construction, reports state, when Charles T. McGlathery, 39, of San Antonio, Texas, drove a semi truck into an IDOT dump truck being driven by Joshua Ratermann, 34, of Alma. The dump truck driven by Ratermann consequently struck another IDOT dump truck being driven by John L. Bradley, 45, of Centralia.

One man not in a vehicle was struck and injured during the accident. Ernest Wayne Berry, 65, of Junction City, was filling pot holes along the side of the road when the accident occurred.

McGlathery was cited for failing to yield to a stationary authorized emergency vehicle and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

McGlathery was taken to Salem Township Hospital; Ratterman was taken to St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital in Centralia; Dicky R. Hanks, 61, a passenger of one of the vehicles, was taken to St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital in Centralia; Bradley was taken to Salem Township Hospital; Berry was taken to St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital in Centralia and later was taken to Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Mo.

The accident was handled by ISP Trooper Paine.
