Two Olney men were injured in an accident that occurred shortly after 10:00pm on Thursday.
According to a report from the Illinois State Police, 58 year old, Brian L. Mason was traveling southbound on CR 2125E, just north of CR 350N. A deer then ran out in front of the vehicle and Mason swerved to avoid hitting the deer. He ran off the roadway and struck a culvert, causing the front driver’s side wheel to come off the vehicle. The vehicle came to a rest in the intersection of CR 2125E and CR 350N. Mason and his passenger, 58 year old, James L. Wesner, were transported to Richland Memorial Hospital for treatment.
Mason is being charged with improper lane usage and failure to wear a seat belt.
