One of the people involved in the accident that sent a pickup truck into the Little Vermilion River remains hospitalized. 

James Lenz was in fair condition at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria Wednesday.  Lenz was taken there after a crash Monday night along Interstate 39 near Troy Grove.

Police say Lenz was in a truck driven by 15 year old Ethan Streitmatter.  The boy was driving with a learner’s permit when the truck left the road and went into the river.

Firefighters had to free them from the truck.  The boy was treated at Mendota Community Hospital.
