    According to Chief Lonnie McDaneld of the Kell Fire Department, a 35-year-old Centralia man was airlifted this morning to a St. Louis area hospital for treatment of injuries he suffered in a one-car accident on Route 37.

    Reports indicate that just after 1 a.m. this morning, Chris Wethington was traveling on State Route 37 in Kell, when he swerved to avoid hitting a deer. His car went off the road, overturning multiple times before becoming airborne and striking a tree. The extent of his injuries is not yet clear.
