A Sigel man was injured in an accident that occurred on Route 45, Tuesday afternoon.
54-year-old, Ralph Walters, of Effingham, was at a stoplight in the southbound lane of Route 45, approximately one-half mile north of County Road 1900N. 66-year-old, David Shumacher, of Sigel, saw Walters at the stoplight as he came over the hillcrest and attempted to slow down. Due to the grass clippings in the raodway, he was unable to slow his motorcycle and ended up rear-ending Walters.
David Shumacher was transported to HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital for treatment.
