[October 08, 2007]  A Lincoln man was taken to St. John's Hospital in Springfield with life-threatening injuries following an early morning crash on Saturday. Daniel Hemenway, 47, was the single occupant of the silver 2005 Toyota Camry.

Hemenway was three miles south of Mount Pulaski, southbound on state Route 121, at approximately 1 a.m. when he lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle partially traveled off the roadway into the gravel area and west ditch. As the vehicle re-entered the roadway, it began to rotate counterclockwise. The vehicle crossed the southbound and northbound lanes of travel before entering the east ditch. As the vehicle traversed the ditch, it struck the embankment. The vehicle came to rest facing southeast in the northbound lane of travel.

Hemenway was transported by Logan County Paramedic Association to St. John's Hospital.

Assisting Illinois State Police at the scene were the Logan County Sheriff's Department, Mount Pulaski Fire Department and Latham Fire Department.

Hemenway was issued citations for driving under the influence of alcohol, improper lane usage and failure to wear a seat belt.

The public is reminded that anyone is presumed innocent until charges are proven in a court of law.
