A 27-year-old Addieville man has died from injuries sustained in a traffic accident in Bond County, officials say.
Bond County Coroner Anthony R. Brooks has said that an investigation continues into a fatal vehicle traffic accident that occurred Thursday at 4:30 AM on Jamestown Road 2.2 miles south of Illinois Route 143.
27 year old John P. Jackson III, of Addieville, Illinois, was pronounced deceased at the scene at 5:22 am by Coroner Brooks.
Published reports state that Jackson was the sole occupant of a Hyundai 4 door passenger car that was traveling southbound on Jamestown Road. A preliminary investigation reportedly indicates that the vehicle left the roadway on the right side, traveled through brush and trees and rolled over. It then came to rest against a tree, and Jackson was ejected from the vehicle.
The accident is being investigated by the Bond County coroner and the Bond County Sheriff’s Office.
