Double Fatal Crash

Two men were killed in a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 64 in St. Clair County early Sunday morning.

State Police report an 81 year old man from Belleville was eastbound on I64 in a Chrysler and was apparently either stopped in the lane of traffic, or attempting to pull over to the shoulder of the road and was still partially in the roadway. Another eastbound vehicle, a Honda driven by a 40 year old man from Troy, struck the rear of the Chrysler. The impact forced the Chrysler to cross all lanes of traffic and come to rest against the center median wires. The Honda came to a stop on the right shoulder. Both drivers were pronounced deceased at the scene.

Neither victim has been identified as Illinois State Police continue their investigation into the crash.
