A Teutopolis man was injured in a crash Sunday.

Effingham County Sheriff John Monnet Wednesday said 26-year-old Toby Depoister was traveling on a moped about 4pm.  Monnet said Depoister lost control of the unit in a curve and the unit ran off the roadway.

Depoister was ejected from the cycle and struck his head when landing.  He was first taken to St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham, but was transferred to Carle Hospital in Urbana for further treatment.  He was listed in fair condition as of Wednesday afternoon.

The incident occurred on North Green Street at 1550th Avenue on the north edge of Teutopolis.

Depoister is being cited for no registration of the cycle and no insurance on the vehicle.

The report on the Sunday crash was made available today.
