Reports from authorities show that a collision between a white 2018 Hyundai Elantra and a silver 2012 Kia Optima occurred on the right lanes of southbound Interstate 71 near mile marker 11.6. The impact of the crash caused the Kia to go off the road and crash into the concrete median. The driver of the Hyundai, an 18-year-old female, and her passenger, a 21-year-old male, were both injured in the accident. The female was transported to Jewish Hospital for care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
