Investigation into the scene of an accident which occurred at approximately 4:50 p.m. on Thursday, August 2, revealed that a vehicle driven by Melvin Baker, 62, Emden, was westbound on IL-10, west of County Highway 17, when the driver veered off the road to the left (south). Continuing in the ditch, Baker slid sideways, struck an embankment, and then partially rolled. Baker came to a rest on its wheels, facing east. Both front airbags deployed. The crash appeared to cause significant damage to Baker’s vehicle. Baker was transported by ambulance to St. Joseph Hospital in Bloomington. The vehicle was towed from the scene.
