Three people were injured Thursday morning when their van crashed just north of Edgewood.

The crash happened at 4:40am on I-57 northbound when the driver, 70-year-old Lorene Mathews of Hubertson, Wisconsin, fell asleep.  Mathews' van ran off the roadway and into the median and then back onto and across the road.  The van overturned several times and came to rest in a ditch.

Mathews and her two passengers, also from Wisconsin, were injured and were taken to St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham for treatment.
