A Shobonier man was injured in a two vehicle accident this morning in Marion County. Illinois State Police reports say the accident occurred on U.S. Route 51, at Fairman Road–which is 4 miles north of Sandoval. Reports from the ISP say that a Semi-trailer operated by 39 year old Louis Freeman of Atlanta, Georgia was north bound on Route 51 and was back into a lot on the west ride of Route 51 and his trailer was blocking both lanes. A vehicle driven by 40 year old Jeff Stephenson of Shobonier struck the trailer near the rear front tandems. Stephenson was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia for treatment of injuries.
