Posted by wlpo on August 10, 2011

Following behind a driver you just want to pass can leave you itching to hit the gas but you need to be patient.  A man from Earlville has died after apparently crashing head-on with a semi truck.  Police believe 37 year old Danny Lassiter was trying to pass the van in front of him.

It happened around 9:30am Wednesday on Route 34 between Earlville and Mendota.  Lassiter was pronounced dead at the scene.  The man driving the truck wasn’t hurt.
