Woman injured, ticketed in crash

BONDVILLE — A Seymour woman was injured in a drunken driving crash Thursday morning about 2 miles south of Bondville.

Champaign County sheriff's Sgt. Dan Coile said Jennifer Chaney, 41, was driving north on County Road 600 E near County Road 1375 N at 11:38 a.m. when she lost control of the pickup truck. The truck went in the ditch on the east side of County Road 600 N and overturned.

Chaney was taken to Carle Foundation Hospital, where she was treated and released. Her passenger, Larry Vaughn Jr., 39, was not seriously hurt.

Coile said Chaney was ticketed for driving under the influence and both she and Vaughn were cited for illegal transportation of alcohol after police found beer in the truck.
