According to information from the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department, the first wreck, near the intersection of Old State and Mobile, took place at around 10:20 p.m. and involved three vehicles.

Each vehicle contained multiple juveniles, ranging from 11-16 years old. From the limited details available, we know that 19-year-old Brenden Curtis of Waverly was taken to Passavant Area Hospital to treat injuries suffered from the accident. Curtis was released this morning.

Nearly two hours later, 25 year old Jill Burnett of the 700 block of East Lafayette was involved in a one vehicle accident on Old State Road. Reports say Burnett drove her vehicle into a ditch, over corrected and rolled her SUV several times. Burnett was not ejected from her car, but was transported to Memorial Hospital in Springfield.
