Driver injured doing "donuts" near Lake Kinkaid Marina

An Illinois man is recovering from injuries after authorities say he was injured doing tricks in his vehicle.

On August 8th just before 4:30 in the afternoon the Jackson County Sheriff's Office received a report of a traffic crash at "The Point" at Lake Kinkaid Marina.

It was reported a vehicle rolled and rested on top of a passenger, but witnesses were able to remove the vehicle.

When Jackson County deputies arrived on scene, they learned the driver, 21 year-old Bryan Bouas of Shiloh, was trying to do "donuts" in a field in his 1993 Jeep Cherokee.

The Jeep overturned and Bouas was ejected.

Bouas was taken to Murphysboro hospital for treatment and later moved to a St. Louis hospital.

Two other passengers were not hurt.
