MARSEILLES — State police have issued a citation in connection with the three-vehicle accident Sunday on Interstate 80 that killed a Michigan man.
Steven S. Clark, 24, of Theodore, Ala., was charged with failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident after his semi tractor struck from behind a van driven by Edward A. Accivatti, 35, of New Baltimore, Mich., who was killed in the crash.
In an updated report, state police said the accident occurred when Clark failed to brake in time to avoid traffic that had halted near the Marseilles exit due to a previous and unrelated rollover accident. Clark’s semi struck Accivatti’s van and then “continued through” the van and struck a semi driven by David Richardson, 70, of Kaufman, Texas. Accivatti was pronounced dead at the scene.
State police from District 17 and District 5, with help from La Salle County sheriff’s deputies, rerouted traffic off the interstate at the Seneca exit, eight miles east of the crash scene. The crash generated an hours-long backup.
