Fatal Wrong-Way Crash Still Under Investigation

Posted by wlpo on March 4, 2013

A weekend crash that killed a man on Interstate 80 near Seneca is still under investigation.

The Grundy County Coroner’s Office says 66-year old Abed Bader of Bridgeview was killed after being hit by a wrong-way driver just after midnight Saturday morning.  Investigators think Bader was heading back to his home in Bridgeview after stopping in Spring Valley to deliver medical supplies when an unidentified wrong-way driver hit him head on.  Bader came to a stop eastbound I-80 and was then hit by a semi.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers have not released the name of the wrong-way driver who survived the crash but was taken to a Joliet hospital with spinal injuries.  The semi driver wasn’t hurt.
