A Dieterich man was injured in a crash Sunday night.

22-year-old Levi Lidy was southbound on the Dieterich Blacktop, 4-1/2 miles south of Dieterich, when his car drove onto the west shoulder of the roadway, then made an attempt to steer back onto the roadway. State police say Lidy overcorrected and put the car into a skid. The car traveled east across the northbound lane, struck the ditch, overturned and struck a utility pole.

Lidy was transported by helicopter and ambulance to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana for treatment.

Lidy was cited for improper lane usage, failure to reduce speed to avoid the crash, failure to wear a seat belt, illegal transportation of liquor, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, and reckless driving.

The crash happened just before 10:30pm.
