VEHICLE INVOLVED IN PURSUIT FOUND ABANDONED

 

In an update to a story previously reported on WGEL, a car that was the reason for a pursuit in Bond County Sunday night, was found abandoned.  Greenville Police Officers were involved in a pursuit around 9:50 PM as a result of an attempted routine traffic stop in Greenville.  The suspect refused to stop and continued out of town on Old National Trail and then onto I-70 westbound.  The pursuit ended just west of the Highland - Pierron exit on I-70. A few hours later, Maryville Police found the vehicle abandoned on Route 159, just north of I-55/70.

 

The driver of the vehicle is facing charges of alleged attempt to allude, driving while license revoked, speeding, traffic sign violations, and improper or damaged head lights.


MORE FROM THE BOND COUNTY BOARD MEETING TUESDAY

 

At Tuesday's Bond County Board meeting, board members approved a zoning recommendation, in the form of a Special Use Permit, to Lester and Kim Cordvant, allowing them to place a doublewide manufactured home on five acres in Burgess Township.  The home will be for an elderly parent. Robert Lindbergh, with Fayco Enterprises, reported on the organization's budget and requested $25,750 for Bond County's continued partnership with the group.  Board members approved the request by a vote of 4-0, with Joe Whalen abstaining.

 

Tony Koonce, with the Vietnam Veteran's Traveling Wall Committee provided details on the wall coming to Bond County next year during the Fair.  As a community project, he asked if the Bond County Board could help with any advertising and/or funding.  Board members agreed to look into what they could do for the event.

 

And the Comet's Sports Boosters Club was granted permission to use the northeast corner of the courthouse lawn for their annual homecoming cookout, from 8am-3PM on Friday, September 21st.  The next Bond County Board meeting will be Tuesday, September 18th at 7:30PM.


OFFICERS BUSY WITH ACCIDENT REPORTS WEDNESDAY

 

Local law enforcement officers were busy Wednesday, handling minor traffic accidents.  The first one occurred at 8:35am on the Mulberry Grove Keyesport Road near Hastings Cemetery Avenue.  The driver of a 1990 Monte Carlo lost control of the vehicle, went off the roadway and spun around three times.  Damage to the car was over $500, but no one was injured.  The second report was called in around the same time, but at Route 127 and Keyesport Road.  The driver of a 1999 Ford Explorer said that a passing dump truck had thrown rock and debris onto the SUV, shattering the driver's side window.  No one was injured.

 

Greenville Police then responded to 3rd Street at South Avenue to take another accident report.  The driver of a 1997 Ford was stopped on Third Street, getting ready to turn left, when the driver of a 2001 Toyota ran into the back end of the stopped vehicle.  The driver of the Toyota was ticketed for alleged failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
