One Injured in Hwy. 82 Accident

One man is hospitalized after DPS Troopers say he drives his car into the back of a tanker truck.
A simple right turn was anything but that as two vehicles come to a grinding halt on Highway 82 this afternoon.
   
The accident happened about 1:30 just west of Holliday on Highway 82 and Ferguson Road.  DPS Troopers say the driver of a tanker truck owned by Nichols Trucking Inc. and a car driven by 42 year-old Jin Kim of Macomb, Illinois, were both traveling east on Highway 82.  But as the truck was making a right turn onto Ferguson Road, the car, a Pontiac G6, hit the back right corner of truck and went underneath.
   
Troopers say Mr. Kim was transported to the hospital, but that his injuries are not life-threatening.
