Local Peoria Woman Injured in Car Accident Caused by Loose Wheel

Courtney Newgard, a local Peoria woman, was injured in a car accident yesterday afternoon after her car crashed into a median on I-74 when a car tire from another driver’s vehicle came loose and struck her vehicle.

A Jeep Liberty, operated by an unnamed 16-year-old, lost its front driver’s wheel while on eastbound I-74. The wheel traveled across the interstate and collided with Newgard’s SUV.

After the accident, Newgard was rushed to Carle Foundation Hospital, where she received treatment prior to release.
