A Jacksonville man was hospitalized over the weekend after an apparent DUI incident.

Reports from the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department indicate 47-year-old Mark Hennessy of the 1900 block of Woods Lane was involved in an accident on Interstate 72 near the 64 mile marker at around 1 a.m. on Sunday.

Hennessy was apparently headed eastbound and exiting the highway when he veered to the left and rolled the vehicle. Hennessy was taken to Passavant Area Hospital and transferred to Memorial Medical Center in Springfield. He is listed in good condition this morning.

Hennessy was issued a citation for DUI and improper lane usage.
