Jeff Tenhouse facing two aggravated DUI charges

Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard says the driver in a Sunday morning crash that killed one woman and injured two others is now facing charges.

Barnard says Jeff Tenhouse, 47, is charged with two counts of aggravated DUI. Tenhouse had his first court appearance Monday morning.

Authorities say the crash happened Sunday at about 3:30 a.m. on North 803rd Lane, just west of Illinois 104. Deputies arrived on the scene and found that Tenhouse's car had rolled over.

Amanda Krutmeier, 34, of Liberty, Illinois, was a passenger in the car and died a short time after at Blessing Hospital, according to Adams County Coroner Jim Keller. Robert Hyer, 41, of Quincy, and Douglas Tenhouse, 34, were also injured in the crash. Hyer is in serious condition at Blessing Hospital, while Douglas Tenhouse is listed in stable condition.

Barnard says Jeff Tenhouse was taken into custody Sunday morning after being treated and released from Blessing Hospital.

He'll be back in court August 25th.
