DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) - Two drivers, including a deputy, suffered serious injuries in a Sunday night crash. 

The Macon County Sheriff's office says it happened after 10:30 p.m., when a deputy was getting ready to respond to a possible home invasion in Oreana. The crash happened at Route 48 and Mound Road in Decatur. 

On Monday morning, Decatur police told WAND News the crash ended with minor injuries. A press release from Macon County deputies instead says both drivers had serious injuries. 

Deputies say they thought the men had minor injuries, but medical treatment revealed they were actually serious in nature.

Decatur police are continuing to investigate the crash on Monday. 

"The Macon County Sheriff's Office asks that you keep both drivers in your thoughts and prayers," the press release says.
