A tow truck driver who witnessed the crash said that the Jeep was driving at a high rate of speed, possibly around 100 miles per hour. The man driving the car suffered injuries to his leg and hip, and had a possible concussion, but was not seriously injured, according to another witness at the scene.

Paramedics transported the man by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment.

It is unknown if the driver was cited or arrested. Requests for information from the Illinois State Police were not returned as of Saturday afternoon.
