CUMBERLAND CO., Ill. - A four-vehicle crash not far from Montrose in Cumberland County claimed the life of one of the drivers yesterday afternoon.

Illinois State Police said the accident occurred on Interstate 70's eastbound lanes at milepost 107, about two miles east of Montrose at 1:33 p.m. Wednesday, August 9.

ISP said that a white 2000 International truck-tractor pulling a gray 1997 East dump trailer driven by Cole A. Johnson, 24, of Shelbyville; a black 2017 Mazda sedan passenger car being driven by Daniel T. Waterfill, 61, of Plainfield, Ind.; a black 2005 Volvo truck tractor pulling a white 2008 Great Dane semi-trailer being operated by Dale E. Bondy, 73, of Waterloo, Iowa; and a white 2016 Volvo truck tractor pulling a white 2003 Wabash semi-trailer being operated by Alerto Rios, 44, of Mexico, were all traveling eastbound at the aforementioned location.

The Mazda and both Volvos were all slowing or stopped in the construction zone. Johnson, driving the International truck, failed to stop and struck the rear of the Mazda sedan with the front of the truck.

The Mazda was then pushed into Bondy's Volvo/trailer combination, and Bondy's vehicle was then pushed into the back of Rios' Volvo/trailer combo.

Waterfill, in the Mazda, was fatally injured and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Johnson was cited for Failure to Reduce Speed to Avoid a Crash.
