A Benton, Ill. man was injured on Wednesday after a single-car crash in Franklin County.

According to Illinois State Police, Aaron S. Biggs, 27, was traveling west on Marcum Branch Road near Franklin Cemetery Road at around 2:20 p.m.

Biggs was taken via ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries. He was also charged with failure to wear a seat belt.
