Elmwood man cited
after one-vehicle crash

ELMWOOD – A man was cited for drunken driving, among other charges, as the result of a single-vehicle accident south of Oak Hill that injured him and two passengers.
William B. Bean, 27, registered a blood-alcohol level of .313 following the accident, which took place about 2:15 p.m. Sunday in the 18000 block of W. Meehan Rd., according to the Peoria County Sheriff’s Office. The legal blood-alcohol limit for intoxication is .08.
Bean sustained a punctured lung and a broken left hand and other injuries and was life-flighted to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria. He was moved out of intensive care on Tuesday. Also in the vehicle were a 24-year-old woman, who suffered an arm injury, and a 4-year-old boy who sustained minor scrapes. The women and boy were transported by ambulance to OSF Saint Francis and released.
According to reports, Bean was driving west in a 2002 Ford pickup truck when he swerved right into tall grass, then left across the roadway into an uphill embankment. The vehicle rolled.
Bean told a deputy he noticed something in the road but didn’t remember what happened after that. The female passenger said Bean swerved to avoid hitting a deer.
The deputy noted empty beer cans and liquor bottles next to the pickup truck. But the female passenger said those containers were from previous days, and Bean had only one beer.
Bean also was cited for endangering the life of a child and for driving with a suspended license.
