Illinois Auto Accident Caused When Man Jumps From Car

In Peoria, Illinois two men were injured in a strange auto accident where one man jumped from his car, and then his car crashed into another vehicle, according to the Daily Pekin Times. The car accident occurred at Illinois Route 116 just east of U.S. Route 24 on Thursday.

According to Illinois State Police, a 21 year old resident of Elmwood, Illinois was driving east on Illinois Route 116 when for reasons unknown he jumped from his car. The vehicle was reportedly moving at a high rate of speed during heavy rainfall. The unoccupied car then crossed the median into oncoming traffic and struck a vehicle being driven by Mark P. Neptun, 56, of East Peoria, Illinois.

Both men were taken to area hospitals. The Illinois State Police are investigating the accident.
