Man dies in head-on crash between car, truck tractor

CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WAND) – Three people are in hospital care after a car hit the back of a semi-truck.

It happened before 6 p.m. Friday at mile post 194 on Interstate 74. Troopers say a 2013 Hyundai Sonata hit the back of a 2018 Freightliner truck, leaving the Sonata disabled in the road.

Troopers say traffic was backed up extensively before the vehicles could be removed. They say roads are open again late Friday.

The Sonata driver, identified by state police as 36-year-old Qwonzay Stoner, was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
