|Two Jamesport residents were hurt Friday afternoon west of Trenton when a sportutility vehicle went off Highway 6, hit a tree, and overturned.|
The driver, 21 year old Brian Coombs, and a passenger, 15 year old Jeramiah Brittain, were taken to Wright Memorial Hospital at Trenton with what the highway patrol called moderate injuries. The patrol said Coombs was taken to Wright Memorial by ambulance while Brittain was taken to the hospital by private vehicle.
The accident was 5 miles west of Trenton on Highway 6. The patrol said the eastbound car driven by Coombs was overtaking another vehicle and returning to the eastbound lane when Coombs lost control. The car went off the right side of the road, hit a tree, and overturned, coming to rest on its passenger side, demolishing the car.
The patrol said Brittain was wearing a seatbelt, but Coombs was not using a safety device.
The patrol said it was assisted by Grundy County EMS and Chaplain Steve Bramlett.
