CHRISTIAN COUNTY- A two vehicle crash leaves one man dead on Route 29.

Around 8:00 p.m. Saturday evening, authorities were notified and dispatched to a car crash between two vehicles.

The driver of a 2005 Silver Buick was traveling eastbound on Christian County Road 2050N and was approaching the intersection of Illinois Rt. 29 and failed to stop at the stop sign causing a second vehicle, a 2013 Chevrolet, to hit the side of the Buick.

More than 4 passengers were taken to the hospital, and one 87-year-old man who was in the Buick died after being taken to a hospital.

Family members are still being notified, so the man’s name is being withheld by authorities at this time.
