Spring Breakers Involved In I-39 Crash

Posted by wlpo on April 2, 2012

Three men are hospitalized after being hit by a wrong-way driver on Interstate 39.

John Anderson of Wisconsin is in critical condition at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.  Another passenger Jacob Klem and their driver Adyn Clausen of Minnesota are in fair condition.  A third passenger was treated and released.

The men were driving down to Florida Friday night when an 85-year old man from Cleveland, Ohio slammed into them head on.  The elderly man was driving northbound in the southbound lanes of I-39.  He was pronounced dead at the scene but his name is still being withheld.

A car with four other students on their way to Florida was also involved in the crash but no one else was hurt.
