A Campbell Hill teen is charged with driving under the influence and is recovering in a St. Louis hospital after a single-vehicle crash early Thursday.
According to a news release from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded about 1:15 a.m. Thursday morning to reports of a one-vehicle crash on Illinois 4 near Brick Plant Road in Campbell Hill.
The release said Chace Hille, 19, of Campbell Hill, crashed his 1997 Ford pickup truck into the ditch line; evidence indicated Hille was traveling southbound on Illinois 4 when he lost control and his vehicle exited the roadway, overturning before coming to rest on its side.
Hille was cited for driving under the influence of alcohol, driving on a suspended license and operation of an uninsured motor vehicle. An ambulance transported him from the scene of the crash to a local hospital, and he was later taken to a St. Louis hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
