EFFINGHAM CO.—A Newton woman, originally from Clay County, remains on life support this afternoon following a Saturday crash that ISP says involved a driver under the influence.

The accident occurred in Jasper County on CR 1300 North, a half-mile east of Highway 130 shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday, April 13. Derek Stanciu, 26, of Newton, was driving a 2008 Polaris Razor ATV with Andrea Weiler, 25, as a passenger. Authorities say Stanciu lost control of the ATV when it went off the right side of the road and into a ditch, and when he attempted to get back out onto the highway, Weiler was thrown from the vehicle, suffering severe head injuries; she was not wearing a helmet.

Weiler was first taken to St. Anthony’s Memorial in Effingham but was transferred to Carle Clinic in Champaign where she remains and is on life support.

Stanciu has been ticketed by the state police in the incident: DUI, Illegal Transportation of Alcohol, Improper Lane Usage and Improper Operation of an ATV on a Highway.

Weiler is a young mother; her daughter is two years old. Please keep her and her family in your prayers through this difficult time; we’ll have updates as we get them.
