According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, four people were hospitalized after a crash late Saturday night in rural Murphysboro.

It happened shortly before 10:50 p.m. near the intersection of Main Park Road and Murphysboro Lake Road.

Deputies say a 2006 Ford driven by Jonathan L. Trammell, 20, ran off the road before hitting a tree, trapping one of the three passengers.

Murphysboro Pomona Somerset Township Fire Department assisted at the scene.

All four people injured were taken to an area hospital with injuries by the Jackson County Ambulance Service.

One of the passengers was later flown to a St. Louis hospital for treatment.

Trammell was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
