Posted by wlpo on August 4, 2016

Two of the three people killed in Monday’s fiery crash near Ottawa were engaged and due to get married this November.

Twenty-six year old Darrell Scott and 25-year old Abigail Bohstedt of Chicago were both killed in the Interstate 80 crash after they were hit from behind by a semi as they slowed down for construction traffic. The other victim was 34-year-old Octavio Vargas of Warrenville who was driving a truck hauling tires.

A total of three semis, two trucks and one passenger vehicle were caught up in the wreckage. Westbound I-80 traffic was stopped for nine hours around the crash scene.
