Two fatal crashes happened within a couple hours of each other Friday afternoon in La Salle County.

At 3:30, Peru Police responded to an accident on Route 251 at the intersection with Ben Samek Road.  Fifty-three-year-old Danny Foster of Tennessee was killed in the crash.  The other drivers involved were 49-year-old Richard Shambaugh of La Salle who was rear ended by Foster and 31-year-old Abby Pantenburg of Peru who hit Foster after he spun into her lane.  They were both taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru with minor injuries.

Then just after 5:30 Friday afternoon 22-year-old Jordan Morrissey of Earlville was killed in a crash along Route 34 east of Earlville.  No other details about his crash have been released.
