SALINE CO., Ill. - A four-vehicle crash sent a Raleigh man to the hospital and got an Elizabethtown man cited this afternoon on Illinois Route 34 in Saline County.

Illinois State Police in District 19 Carmi responded to the crash which occurred today (Tuesday, May 28) at 3:45 p.m.

According to the preliminary traffic crash investigation, a 2017 Freightliner garbage hauler being driven by Rodney E. Spivey of Elizabethtown was traveling north on 34.

A 2009 Honda Accord being driven by Kyle G. Schwarz of Harrisburg and a 2006 International truck/tractor being driven by David L. Mitchell of Raleigh were stopped northbound behind a 1999 Freightliner truck/tractor being driven by Clint D. Breiner of Damiansville on 34. Breiner's Freightliner was stopped waiting to turn onto Mount Moriah Road.

Spivey, in the 2017 Freightliner, stated his brakes failed and he was unable to stop. Spivey's Freightliner then struck Mitchell's International in the rear end. This set off a chain reaction causing Mitchell's International to strike the rear end of Schwarz' Honda. The Honda then struck the rear end of Breiner's Freightliner.

Mitchell was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries. Spivey was cited for Failing to Reduce Speed to Avoid an Accident.

Route 34 was closed for approximately 3 hours.

ISP District 19 was assisted at the crash scene by Saline County EMS, Saline County Sheriff’s Department, IDOT, Rick's Towing (Mt. Vernon and Fairfield) and Jones Towing (Eldorado).
