ROCK FALLS – Three people were injured Thursday after their car crashed into a transport trailer on Interstate 88, state police said.
According to a news release, Alaina Pfeifer, 22, of Elgin, was driving east on Interstate 88 when she lost control of her car while crossing an iced-over bridge at mile marker 36.8. Pfeifer’s car struck the bridge rail before re-entering traffic and colliding with the trailer, driven by Rebecca Hubbard, 48, of Mooresville, N.C.
Pfeifer and her two passengers, whose names were unavailable, were taken to CGH Medical Center in Sterling with non-life-threatening injuries.
Her car was towed from the scene, and the car transport trailer, though damaged, was still driveable, the release said.
Pfeifer was charged with failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
