Man Injured in Rollover

At about 9:42 a.m. on Dec. 5, Jefferson County Communications received a call of a single vehicle rollover crash Southwest of Thompson.

Emergency Services were dispatched to the scene with information that a single male occupant had been ejected from the vehicle and could not feel anything.

Upon the arrival of a Jefferson County Sheriffs Deputy, the man was located and he had not been ejected, was out of the vehicle, walking around and was not badly injured.

The vehicle was a 1993 Honda Accord 2-door sedan driven by Danny R. Justus Jr., 20 of Fairbury.

The vehicle had apparently been northbound on 563 Avenue and the driver lost control of the vehicle, sliding into the west ditch and rolling onto its top. The vehicle came to rest facing northeast. The vehicle was considered a total loss and restraints were in use according to the Sheriffs Office.
