A Montrose woman was injured earlier this week in an accident in the Culver’s drive-through in Effingham. 63-year-old Judy Hopper was in her vehicle when she opened the door and leaned over to pick up money she had dropped. Hopper didn’t realize the vehicle was in reverse, and it started moving. Hopper was ejected from the vehicle, and her leg was run over. The vehicle then struck and damaged an Ameren CIPS support wire before coming to rest in the wooded area behind Culver’s.
Hopper was transported to St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital for treatment of her injuries. There were no citations in the accident.
