ISP: Man crashes motor home at rest stop, dies from fire
One person died at a rest stop in Jefferson County, Illinois early Sunday morning.
Illinois State Police says the driver of a Coachman Motor Home entered the rest stop at mile marker 85 on I-64 at a high rate of speed.
The motor home hit a parked car. ISP says the high speed caused both vehicles to catch fire. The driver of the motor died. His passenger was air-lifted to a St. Louis hospital for major injuries. Their names have not been released.
The driver and passenger in the parked car were taken to a Mt. Vernon hospital for minor injuries.
The rest stop was shut down for about 10 hours. It has since re-opened. ISP is investigating the cause of the crash.
