  • 0

CASEY — Two Clark County teens were injured due to a rollover crash involving a deer on Saturday at Illinois Route 49 south of Casey.

Illinois State Police District 12 reported that the collision occurred at approximately 7:34 a.m. as a 16-year-old male driver from Westfield was traveling west on Clark County Road 600 North at Route 49 and swerved to miss a deer.

The driver's car left the roadway to the north, struck an embankment and tree, and then overturned. Both the driver and his 16-year-old female passenger from Casey were taken to an area hospital for treatment of injuries.

When disaster strikes, a weather safety toolkit could be the difference between life or death. For this reason, it's incredibly important to have one prepared before the next storm.
