A 29-year-old driver was flown to the hospital after driving a Mustang off the road on westbound U.S. 40 at 5:16 p.m. Tuesday near Martinsville.

Justa Naomi Shinn, of Casey, was traveling westbound in a 1998 red Ford Mustang when a witness said the car crossed over the center lane, according to a release from Illinois State Police. The Mustang over corrected to the right and left the roadway.

After rolling multiple times it came to a stop on its wheels in a ditch, the release stated.

Shinn was ejected from the vehicle and police said there was no one else in the car. Shinn was taken to a hospital in Champaign by helicopter.

Shinn was cited for not having a valid driver’s license, improper lane usage and failing to wear a seat belt.
