MCNABB — A Texas woman was identified as the lone injured person in a three-vehicle accident at 12:45 p.m. Sunday in Putnam County.

Heather Turner, 37, of Amarillo, Texas was identified by Putnam County Sheriff’s Office as the woman flown by helicopter to OSF St. Francis Medical Center for treatment of injuries after she was extricated from her vehicle. A condition report was not available this morning.

Turner was southbound on Route 89 at 700 North Road about two miles north of McNabb when her sport-utility vehicle struck the back end of a vehicle being driven by Laura Smith, 29, of Peru, according to Putnam County Sheriff’s Department. Turner then went into the ditch striking a culvert causing her vehicle to go airborne before striking a parked vehicle driven by Cassie Danekas, 20, of Oglesby. Turner’s vehicle then rolled multiple times.
