One man was injured and transported by ambulance late Monday morning after a truck left the roadway and struck a tree in rural Galena.
The Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call at approximately 11:04 a.m. regarding a one-vehicle accident with injuries on West Guilford Road, near the intersection of Territory Drive.
Through an investigation, it was determined the driver of a 2018 Toyota pickup — the only occupant of the vehicle — was traveling east on Guilford Road when he went off the roadway, striking a tree.
Crews spoke with the driver of the truck, who advised his pupils were dilated because he had just left the eye doctor.
The man was identified as 51-year-old David Marciniec, of Galena.
Marciniec was transported to Midwest Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
He was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
This crash remains under investigation.
