Driver dies in I-71 crash north of Delaware

A Sunbury man was killed this morning when his van ran into the rear of a tractor-trailer parked on the berm of I-71. Don Wilson, 30, was driving north when his vehicle struck the truck about 7:10 a.m., according to the Delaware post of the State Highway Patrol. He was pronounced dead at the scene north of Rt. 36.

The truck driver, Joseph Isacovici, 25, of Gurnee, Ill., was not injured.

The incident was the second fatal wreck in the stretch of I-71 in less than 24 hours. A Mount Vernon woman was killed yesterday morning when her pickup truck ran off I-71 and struck a tree. Source
