July 9, 2017

A 46-year-old Altamont man was injured in a one-vehicle crash on Interstate 57 Friday night. Illinois State Police say Levi W. Boggs was traveling northbound at milepost 117 just north of Salem when he left the roadway and entered the median. The vehicle then struck a raised culvert and became airborne. The vehicle overturned and came to rest on its wheels. First responders found Boggs in the backseat floorboard. He was taken to Salem Township Hospital for treatment of injuries and later airlifted to St. Louis University Hospital. He was ticketed for improper lane usage and failure to wear a seatbelt. The crash occurred at 9:14 Friday night.
