Police searching for a third driver in crash that killed an Oglesby man

Posted by wlpo on November 8, 2011

If you’ve been following the story of the crash on Interstate 39, the man killed was from Oglesby.  Police say 36 year old Eduardo Nieto  was driving a pickup truck that was hit by a van before catching on fire Monday afternoon near Oglesby.

Nieto was pronounced dead at the scene.  The man driving the van, Roberto Tovar of Aurora was able to walk away from the crash.

Police think the van was heading north when it was possibly cut off by a blue pickup truck, causing the van to cross the median into the other lanes of traffic.

If you know anything about the blue truck or saw the crash call the District 17 State Police in La Salle.
