Man in 1957 Chevy dies in Illinois accident

One man has passed away after a car accident that took place on a Sunday afternoon. The crash occurred on Illinois 26, to the north of Rudy Road. Two other people were hurt in the accident and were taken to the hospital to get treatment.

According to the Stephenson County Sheriff’s Department, a man who was 56 years old was driving with his wife, who is a year younger. They were in a classic car, a 1957 Chevy. Another man, who is 69 years old, was coming the other direction in a more modern SUV, a Chevrolet Equinox. Right around one in the afternoon, the Equinox went over the road’s centerline and slammed into the 1957 Chevy.

The driver of the classic car died at the scene of the accident. His wife was injured, and she was brought to Rockford Memorial Hospital by emergency crews. She has been reported to be in stable condition. The driver of the Equinox was hurt, but he reportedly did not have life-threatening injuries, and he was taken to FHN Hospital.

The 69-year-old man was given two citations in the crash. One was for his failure to slow down in an effort to keep from colliding with the other car. The other was for improper lane usage.

Police did not give a reason why the Equinox crossed into the wrong lane and did not slow down.

For those who survive car accidents when loved ones do not, the time immediately following the accident can be chaotic and difficult. To reduce financial stress that would only add to this, they must know their rights to compensation for their loss and their medical bills.
