7 YEAR OLD TROY BOY DIES IN ATV ACCIDENT

A seven-year-old Troy, Illinois boy was killed in an all-terrain vehicle accident Saturday night.  Authorities say Austin J. Henry was riding past his house on the vehicle when he lost control of it, hit a curb and was thrown from the ATV.  His father 35-year-old Paul Henry ran after his son but couldn't catch up with the boy.  Austin died of head and chest trauma at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Anderson Hospital in Maryville.  Authorities say the boy was wearing a helmet and the vehicle's throttle might have gotten stuck, causing him to lose control of the ATV. 


EXPANSION OF DONNEWALD DISTRIBUTING

 

Even as the new Donnewald Distribution Center is being built, expansion has already been announced.  WGEL spoke with Greenville Assistant City Manager Lisa Stephens about the expansion, which means even more jobs for the area. Lisa said that since Donnewald acquired two more distributorships, the original plan for an 80,000 to 90,000 square foot building has increased to a 156,500 sq. ft. building. The original estimate of 80 to 90 new jobs has also increased to an estimated 105-115 new jobs. She added that because of this increase in size and that 50% of Donnewald's territory is now northwest of Greenville, the city hopes to get a road installed from Wolf Park to Route 140. Stephens said that the city would seek funding from the state to help pay to build the road.
