A 64-year-old man is dead following a single-vehicle crash on southbound Interstate 55 just after Caton Farm Rd. Authorities were called to the scene just after 1:00 Monday afternoon to a single vehicle in the ditch. Upon arrival, they found Benito Macias of Kewanee in the car, who succumbed to his injuries. Police and fire closed the right lane just before 1:15, then closed all lanes for investigation and removal of the car at 3:15, for about two hours. An autopsy will be performed on Mr. Macias later today to determine cause of death.
