A Sigel man was injured in a weekend crash in Cumberland County.

The crash happened at 8:25pm Saturday on a rural road two miles east of Sigel.  Illinois State Police report a vehicle driven by 28-year-old Dustin Hotze ran off the roadway to the left.  Hotze then overcorrected and the vehicle came back to the right and Hotze lost control of the vehicle.  The unit flipped several times, coming to rest right side up.  Hotze was ejected from the vehicle.

Hotze was taken to Carle Hospital in Urbana for treatment where he is listed in fair condition today.  He was cited for DUI and improper lane usage.
