One of the drivers involved in a two vehicle crash late Tuesday night on Illinois Route 142 and Woodland Drive near the General Tire Plant southeast of Mt. Vernon has been arrested for alleged driving under the influence and aggravated DUI.  

Jefferson County Sheriff's Officials say 51-year-old David King of Mt. Vernon was taken to the Jefferson County Jail for incarceration after he was released following treatment from the accident at Good Samaritan Hospital.  King collided with a vehicle driven by 24-year-old Kayla Sherman of Mt. Vernon.  

In addition to the two drivers, a passenger in each vehicle was injured.  The passenger in the King's vehicle is identified as 43-year-old Kendra Loman of Mt. Vernon.  The passenger in the SUV is identified as 48-year-old Rosemary Bishop of Mt. Vernon.  All four were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Mt. Vernon.  Loman was later airlifted to a St. Louis Hospital.  

The accident is still under investigation by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.  Deputies were assisted at the scene by Mt. Vernon Police, the Jefferson County Fire Protection District and Litton's Ambulance.  The wreck occurred at 11:03 Tuesday night. Route 142 was shutdown to traffic for an hour as emergency crews first assisted the victims and then cleared the accident scene.
