Dupo, IL (KSDK) - A motorist was injured just after midnight Thursday in a crash at the ramp of Interstate 255 and Illinois Route 3.

Police responded to the scene and located the victim on the side of the highway and his car severely damaged in a nearby field.

Officials believe excessive speed caused the driver to lose control of his Corvette on the Route 3 ramp onto I-255, sending the car rolling and flipping into the field.

The driver climbed from the wreckage and walked back to the shoulder of the highway where he was met by police and paramedics and transported to a hospital for treatment of non life threatening injuries.
