waiting on wrong way driver’s ID

Posted by wlpo on March 3, 2013

It’s not known who was driving a wrong way vehicle on I-80 Saturday near Seneca that struck and killed a Bridgeview man. The Grundy County Coroner’s office says 66-year old Abed Bader was eastbound after Midnight Saturday when an unidentified wrong way driver hit him head on. Bader’s vehicle came to a stop, was hit by a semi and shoved two hundred feet before coming to rest in the median. Bader was pronounced dead at the scene. Bader’s car was so badly crushed, Grundy Coroner John Callahan said it took an hour to remove him. Bader was returning from a stop in Spring Valley.
