Godfrey Fire Protection District Chief Eric Kambarian tells The Big Z the vehicle left the roadway at the end of Lars Hoffman Crossing, hit a slight slope, went airborne, clipped a tree and landed in a cornfield.

Kambarian says initial reports of a passenger in the vehicle appear to be incorrect, following an extensive ground and air search.  The crash victim was taken to a St. Louis hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries.  Kambarian plans to ask the village for the added safety measures at tonight’s Public Safety Committee Meeting.
