Accident killed Princeton man

Kim Shute
Bureau County Reporter

PRINCETON — Dale W. Waugamon, 53, of Princeton died as a result of a two-vehicle accident Monday morning on Route 26 in Princeton Township.

Waugamon was traveling on Route 26 near 1385 North Avenue near Prairie Nursery at approximately 9:30 a.m. when the pickup he was driving swerved over blowing snow in the roadway and crossed the center line. Waugamon’s pickup was struck by a vehicle driven by Dallas J. Munson of Princeton as the Waugamon pickup entered the oncoming traffic lane.

Both Waugamon and Munson were transported to Perry Memorial Hospital, Princeton, where Waugamon was later pronounced dead. Perry Memorial Hospital did not release the condition of Munson.

An obituary for Mr. Waugamon appeared in Wednesday’s edition. Services are at noon Saturday in Norberg Memorial Home, Princeton, with visitation at 10 a.m. in the funeral home.

He was the son of Lee and Constance Waugamon. A Hall High School graduate who had attended Rock Valley Community  College, he owned and operated Waugamon Trucking.

A memorial fund has been set up for his family.
