STREATOR -- A driver was killed Wednesday night in a car-semitrailer truck crash about three miles south of Streator.
A car apparently was northbound on Illinois 23 when it collided about 7 p.m. with a semi that apparently was eastbound on Illinois 17, Livingston County Coroner Mike Burke announced early Thursday.
The driver, whose name was withheld pending notification of next of kin, appeared to be dead when firefighters and emergency medical personnel arrived at the scene, Burke said in a news release. An autopsy has been ordered, he said.
Crews from Advanced Medical Transport from Streator and the Reading Township Fire Department were at the scene, Burke said.
The crash remains under investigation by Illinois State Police and Burke's office.
