David G. Marshall, 64, of 1612 Portuguese Hill Road was thrown from his car after a two-vehicle accident about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday on Portuguese Hill Road just south of Day Road. Morgan County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Brent Penner said Marshall was pulling out of a driveway when his vehicle collided with one driven by Evan L. Wilson, 16, of 2102 Day Road. Marshall’s driver’s side door came open in the collision and he was thrown out, causing serious injuries. Marshall was taken to Passavant Area Hospital and later transferred to St. John’s Hospital in Springfield. Wilson complained of a slight injury to his knee but declined treatment at the scene. He was later treated at Passavant Area Hospital and released.
