Alleged DUI driver crashes, injured, requires sedation

Francis L. Denault, 49, of Joliet, was allegedly driving under the influence when he crashed his car on Illinois 47 in Goodfarm Township April 21.

Denault was injured in the single-vehicle accident and taken to OSF Saint James - John W. Albrecht Medical Center in Pontiac, where he needed to be sedated because he tried to stand and leave multiple times.

Denault was later transferred to OSF Saint Joseph Medical Center in Bloomington because of his injuries.

Grundy County Sheriff’s police will seek an arrest warrant for DUI at a later date.
