A semi truck accident that forced eastbound traffic on Interstate 80 to be detoured for several hours killed a driver from Evergreen Park.

Investigators say Charles Peterlin was pronounced dead at the scene.  Police say he rear-ended a semi that had been stopped because of another accident near the La Salle and Grundy County line.  It happened just before 7am Friday.

Police say it started a series of accidents.  Another driver, Wesley Beauchem of Chana was treated and released from Morris Hospital.

The road reopened shortly before 1pm.
