Michigan man killed in I-80 crash near Marseilles

Posted by wlpo on June 9, 2014

You have to be prepared to stop even when you’re taking the Interstate. A truck driver from Alabama was ticketed for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident after a crash that killed a van driver Sunday afternoon on I-80 near Marseilles.

35-year-old Edward Accivatti of New Baltimore, Michigan was pronounced dead at the scene. State Police investigators believe he was slowing down for traffic that was stopped due to a rollover accident in the westbound lanes when he was hit from behind by Steven Clark of Theodore, Alabama. Police say Clark’s truck also hit a semi that was stopped ahead of Accivatti.
