I-39 wrong way fatal

Posted by wlpo on March 31, 2012

An elderly Ohio state man died Friday night the result of two collisions while driving northbound in the southbound lanes of I-39. The names of those involved have yet to be released. Details from County Coroner Jody Bernard indicated state police were first notified by several phone calls of a vehicle entering the southbound lanes of I-39 near Tonica. That vehicle may have traveled some twelve miles northward in the southbound lanes of I-39 before colliding with two vehicles carrying students bound for spring break. The first vehicles four occupants were taken to IVCH, however, those in the second vehicle received no serious injuries. Illinois State Police District 17, their reconstructionist and the County Coroner Continue to investigate.
