One person was airlifted from the scene of a single-vehicle wreck early this morning near Lake Maxinkuckee. It happened in the 2800 Block of East Shore Drive, according to our reporting partners at WNDU-TV. A vehicle struck a cement wall or embankment, and the occupants had to be cut from it. Two other people were taken to an area hospital for treatment. All three were male, but we don’t have their names or ages yet or any information about the extent of their injuries or where they were taken for treatment.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
