A 19-year-old from Trilla, Illinois in Coles County was injured Wednesday night in a single vehicle accident.
The accident occurred a couple miles north of Effingham on Route 45 just before 9:40pm. Effingham Police say that Chelsee Manion was traveling south on Route 45 when she swerved to avoid a trash barrel that had blown across the road way. Manion lost control of the vehicle and left the road way flipping end over end. She was transported to St. Anthony’s Hospital following the crash.
