CLARK CO., Ill. - A two-vehicle collision in Clark County yesterday was attributed to slowed/stopped traffic in Illinois waiting on a crash in Indiana to be cleared.

Illinois State Police said the accident occurred on Interstate 70 in Clark County, seven miles east of Marshall at 5:20 p.m. yesterday, Friday, June 16.

ISP said that Harvinder Sandhu, no age given, from Canada, was driving a 2016 Volvo truck-tractor with semi trailer near milepost 153.3 in Clark County in the eastbound lane of the interstate. With Sandhu was Munish Kumar, no age given, also of Canada, as a passenger.

Ismael Rasool, no age given, of Michigan, was also eastbound on 70 at that location in a 2011 Volvo truck-tractor with semi, and had slowed or stopped in traffic due to a crash in Indiana, which caused a traffic backup into Illinois. With Rasool was a passenger, Ahmed Mugheer, also from Michigan, also no age given.

Sandhu's vehicle struck Rasool's  in the rear of the semi-trailer.

Sandhu was injured and airlifted to Terre Haute Regional Hospital and Kumar was transported to Union Hospital in Terre Haute by Marshall Ambulance Service.

Rasool and Mugheer were transported to Terre Haute Regional Hospital by Marshall Ambulance Service.

Both lanes of I-70 eastbound were shut down for approximately four hours following the crash.
