Fiery Crash on I-57 Wednesday near Kinmundy sends one to hospital

KINMUNDY, IL — A fiery crash Wednesday afternoon on southbound Interstate 57 just north of the Kinmundy exit sent one of two semi-truck drivers to an area hospital for treatment.

According to the Illinois State Police, around a semi driven by 66-year-old Lieonell Stahoski of Pine Island, Minnesota was traveling southbound when it ran onto the right shoulder and struck a disabled semi driven by 34-year-old Rami Toma of Warren, Michigan. ISP reports the disabled truck had its hazard lights on and reflective triangles placed behind the vehicle. After impact, Stahoski’s semi continued into the right ditch and caught fire. Kinmundy-Alma Firemen say both drivers were out of their trucks upon arrival. The semi that caught fire had both the cab and trailer destroyed. Firefighters were on scene for approximately three hours.

Stahoski was ticketed for improper lane usage, failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and failure to reduce speed when approaching a disabled vehicle.
