Centralia Man Injured in Thursday Morning WreckA 27-year-old Centralia man was injured in a single vehicle wreck early Thursday morning on the Edgewood Road north of the Tonti Road. Marion County Sheriff's Deputies say Dusty Keller of East Second missed a curve and struck a Tri-County Electric pole, shearing it off. Keller was taken to Salem Township Hospital for treatment. The wreck knocked power lines onto the Edgewood Road and the nearby Union Pacific Railroad tracks. Train traffic had to be shutdown and the Edgewood Road was closed until Tri-County Electric crews could replace the pole and get the power lines off the ground. Keller was ticketed for driving on a suspended license. The wreck occurred at 4:35 Thursday morning.
