PIATT COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — A Pesotum man was killed in a two-vehicle accident Tuesday. It happened about 10 am, on I-74 eastbound, between Mahomet and Mansfield.

The 46-year old male driver of a Chevy Express van was unable to stop in time when a semi-truck in front of him slowed for traffic congestion.

He hit the back of the truck and was pronounced dead at the scene. He was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt.

The driver of the semi, a 50-year old woman from Grand Meadow, Minn., was not hurt. No charges are pending.

Names of those involved have not yet been released.
