One person was injured in an accident that occurred early Saturday on U.S. Route 50, just west of Odin.
42 year old, Eric White, of Salem, was traveling west on U.S. Route 50 at a high rate of speed. Unable to negotiate the curves of the roadway, White ran off the road to the south and came back onto the road. White, then, over-steered the vehicle, causing it to once again leave the roadway. The vehicle continued through the ditch, sliding out of control, until it hit an embankment. The vehicle, then, went air borne, landing in the ditch and overturning several times. It came to a rest upside down in the ditch, just west of Farthing Road. White was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia for treatment.
Eric White was charged with DUI. Further charges are pending completion of the investigation.
