Eight miles north of Eagleville, 19-year-old Shiloh Leavitt of St. Jacob, Illinois received minor injuries and was taken by ambulance to Harrison County Community Hospital in Bethany.

She was a passenger in a car driven by her father, 51-year-old Richard Leavitt of Bluegrass, Iowa who wasn’t hurt.

The highway patrol reports the car was southbound when it hydroplaned during heavy rain and went off the right side of I-35, struck a bridge wall three times, and came to a stop partially in the southbound lane.

The car was demolished and both occupants wore seat belts.
