St. Clair County car accident: three hospitalized, one dead

In a recent tragic car accident, a 33-year-old Collinsville man was killed in a head-on crash. Declared dead at the scene, the man was said to have been passing another vehicle when he collided with a minivan travelling in the other direction. While the man was apparently wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash, he still suffered blunt force trauma that claimed his life. There were no passengers in his vehicle. Sadly, car accidents of this nature occur all too often in St. Clair County.
