The Christian County Sheriff’s Office responded to a vehicle accident on the early morning of January 12th. A vehicle was traveling south on 1350 East (South Cherokee Street) South of IL Route 48. The driver left the roadway on the east side of the road and traveled along the shoulder of the road for about 210 feet before hitting the water in the ditch. The roads had been icy. Once the vehicle hit the water, the truck overturned and was facing back to the north with the passenger side of the truck closest to the road. Driver and passengers were able to exit the vehicle with the help of a vehicle driving past and all occupants were transported to Taylorville Memorial Hospital. There was confusion over who was driving the vehicle as Stefan Bedinger, Eric D. Buerk, and Curtis M. Eller were all in the vehicle. Mr. Eller and Mr. Bedinger stated Mr. Buerk was driving the vehicle, however, this is still under investigation by the Christian County Sheriff's Office and has not been decided who actually was driving.
