Driver crashes near Utica after passing out while driving

Posted by wlpo on September 24, 2015

There was one injury but a crash along Interstate 80 near Utica could’ve been a lot worse.

Thomas Stoll of Aurora says he was westbound on I-80 Thursday morning when he passed out behind the wheel. Stoll drove his van off the right side of the interstate, came back across both lanes of traffic underneath the Route 178 overpass before crashing his van into the median cable barrier.

He was taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru. Nobody else was involved in the crash.
