At 9:14pm Friday night a pickup driven by Levi Boggs, 41 of Altamont, was traveling northbound on I-57 just north of Salem when the vehicle left the roadway and entered the median.  The truck then struck a raised culvert in the median and became airborne.  The vehicle overturned and came to rest on its wheels. 

Boggs was located by first responders in the backseat floorboard.  He was transported to Salem Area Hospital where he was then airlifted to St. Louis University Hospital for treatment.

Boggs was charged with improper lane usage and failure to wear a seatbelt.
