According to the report, a white 2012 Jeep appeared to have entered the ditch just before this intersection while traveling east on 1800 North Avenue. The ditch at the intersection acted as a ramp. The Jeep went airborne and flipped after hitting the ground.

The accident remains under investigation by the Bureau County Sheriff’s Office and Bureau County Coroner, Janice Wamhoff.
