A Bellwood man died recently from injuries related to a multi-vehicle crash that happened on April 10, according to multiple reports.

Daryl D. Langston, 28, was pronounced dead on the scene after his 2001 Chevrolet Pickup collided with a semi-tank truck on I-80. The accident happened on “Wednesday just before 9 a.m,” CBS Local reports.

“Illinois State Police said the pickup truck tried crossing over to the I-57 exit ramp, but cut-off the tanker and hit it,” the CBS report explains. “The pick-up driver was ejected his vehicle and killed.”

The tanker subsequently lost control, veered off the highway, rolled over and hit a light pole that struck a Ford sedan. The woman driving the sedan was uninjured.

“The Illinois Department of Transportation reported all lanes eastbound of Interstate 80 were blocked at the I-57 interchange due to the crash just before 10 a.m.,” according to CBS.
