Streator man crawls away from rollover crash

Posted by wlpo on February 24, 2016

A Streator man is lucky to be alive after rolling his car several times.

Deputies in La Salle County say 27-year-old Charles Siefert was on Route 23 Tuesday night west of Serena when he ended up in a ditch and overturned his car several times. Siefert was thrown from the car but, miraculously, he was able to crawl back and hunker down in the front seat until police and paramedics showed up.

He was taken to OSF St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa. Siefert was ticketed for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
