Man killed in Iroquois County accident
A 25-year-old man was killed in a two-car accident on Route 52 on Sunday night.
The man was from Fithian and was heading eastbound on Route 52 when he crossed the center line into the oncoming lane. A father and son were traveling westbound when the man swerved into their lane.
The son, who was driving the vehicle, tried to move their motor home out of the way of the oncoming vehicle, but he was unsuccessful and the two vehicles collided. The vehicles both burst into flames on impact.
The father and son were taken to the hospital to be treated and the driver of the fist vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.
Car accidents can happen unexpectedly and change the lives of everyone involved, our thoughts are with the friends and family.
