A former Clay City woman has died of injuries received over the weekend in an ATV crash.

25-year-old Andrea Weiler of Newton was a passenger on an ATV operated by 26-year-old Derek Stanciu of Newton that ran off a rural road just after 5pm Saturday.  As Stanciu attempted to get the ATV back onto the roadway, Weiler was thrown off the unit.

Weiler was taken to St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham and was then taken to Carle Hospital in Urbana.  She died there of her injuries just after noon on Tuesday.

Stanciu faces charges including DUI from the crash.
