RANTOUL — No tickets were issued to a woman whose van rolled over northwest of Rantoul last week, resulting in serious injuries to her.

A Champaign County sheriff’s deputy’s report said Tamaria L. Lewis, 32, of Urbana, was delivering the U.S. mail in her own vehicle about 1:10 p.m. on Sept. 4 when she left the road for an unknown reason.

She was alone in the van.

The crash happened near the intersection of county roads 3300 N and 1400 E, about 2 miles northwest of Rantoul and resulted in Lewis’ ejection as the van rolled over twice.

Lt. Brian Mennenga said Lewis was driving south on 1400 E, just north of 3300 N, when she left the road on the west, overcorrected then went back across the road and hit the ditch on the east side.

She was taken to Carle Foundation Hospital, where she remained Thursday in fair condition.
