Two teenagers were injured Friday night during a crash along the Moccasin Road.

The crash was reported at 7:14pm at the intersection with the Altamont blacktop.  The driver of the vehicle involved, 16-year-old Michelle Lissak of Effingham told the Effingham County Sheriff's Department that she was traveling west and tried to turn left onto the blacktop at too high a rate of speed and lost control of the vehicle. 

The unit ran off the roadway and through a ditch coming to a stop in a beanfield.

Lissak was injured as was her 14-year-old passenger and both were taken to St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham for treatment.
