A Litchfield man was injured in a single vehicle accident in the early morning hours Saturday.

49 year old Jimmy D. Darrah was westbound on IL Rt. 16 at Franke Road in Macoupin County when he lost control of this vehicle on the roadway and began to skid. Illinois State Police say the vehicle left the roadway to the right and struck a utility pole with the driver’s side, causing the pole to break. Darrah was ejected from the vehicle and was transported to Memorial Medical Center in Springfield. Illinois State Police say alcohol was allegedly a factor in the crash.

Darrah was issued six citations, including for alleged driving while license revoked, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, and driving under the influence of alcohol.
