A woman was sent to the hospital this morning after a crash on I-70 in Putnam County.

Officials say the crash occurred just before 10:00 A.M. this morning when a westbound silver 2013 Chevrolet Impala, driven by 52 year-old Robin Blansett of Farmersburg, left the roadway and struck the center median barrier cables, (picture of damaged vehicle below.)

After striking the cables, the Impala reentered the roadway and struck a westbound 2003 Kenworth tractor pulling a semi-trailer and driven by 58 year-old Daniel Foster of Joplin, Missouri.

Blansett was transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital in Brazil for treatment of a medical episode.
Officials also say her seatbelt and airbags helped prevent further injuries in the crash.

Daniel Foster was not injured nor cited during the crash.
