FRANKLIN COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A man is seriously injured after a single car crash 7:26 p.m. on Wednesday on Il. Rt. 37, just two miles south of Benton.

Steven A. Moore, 27, of Mulkeytown, was driving south when he apparently lost control of his vehicle for unknown reasons, left the right side of the roadway, traveled down an embankment, overturned and was ejected.

Officials say the driver and sole occupant received major injuries and was airlifted to an out of state hospital.

The crash is still under investigation and excessive speed and impaired driving is believed to have been a factor.
