Nebo motorist fatally injured in Pike County crash

Posted: Updated:

 

NEBO, Ill. -- A 28-year-old Nebo man was fatally injured Saturday morning in a one-car accident on County Road 10 about a mile west of Nebo in Pike County.

A passer-by who spotted a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix on its top in a field south of the road called emergency officials about 5:29 a.m., according to the Pike County Sheriff's Department.

A news release from the Sheriff's Department said the driver, Brian M. Walston, was believed to be traveling east heading home from work when the vehicle went out of control, struck a guardrail, left the road and overturned in a nearby field.

The Sheriff's Department said Walston was taken by ambulance to Illini Community Hospital in Pittsfield and then airlifted to Blessing Hospital in Quincy, where he was pronounced dead.

The accident remains under investigation by the Pike County Sheriff's Department, the Pike County coroner's office and the Adams County coroner's office.

Assisting at the accident scene were Pike County EMS, Pleasant Hill Fire and Rescue, and the Spring Creek Fire and Rescue.
