A Texas woman was injured Thursday in a two-vehicle accident in Fayette County.

According to Illinois State Police District 12, a vehicle driven by Wages Eula McBroom, 50, of Nacadocious, Texas, was traveling in the southbound lane of I-57, one mile north of Farina, in Fayette County, when a vehicle driven by Michael T. Vardusk, 48, of Oak Forest struck the right rear of the McBroom vehicle while attempting to pass at 7:02 a.m. Thursday.

McBroom was taken to St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital, Effingham, for treatment of injuries. Her condition is unknown because the hospital no longer releases patient information.

Vardusk was cited for failure to reduce speed in order to avoid an accident.
