Man dead, woman airlifted after Iroquois County crash

 A Cissna Park man is dead and an Ashkum woman is hurt after a crash in Iroquois County on Monday morning.

Just before 9:40 a.m., Iroquois County Sheriff’s Deputies, Crescent EMS, and Watseka Fire arrived at the scene in rural Watseka. Authorities said the accident happened at the 1600 East and 1900 North intersection.

An investigation suggested that 77-year-old Rodney Windhorn of Cissna Park was traveling south on 1600 East. Meanwhile Rhonda Kollmann, 66 of Ashkum, was traveling east. Windhorn failed to stop at the fully marked intersection, hitting Kollmann’s van.

 

 

The Iroquois County Sheriff’s Office said Windhorn was pronounced dead at the scene. Kollmann was hurt and taken to a nearby hospital, then ultimately airlifted to another one for further treatment.

Illinois State Police assisted the Sheriff’s Office at the scene. The incident remains under investigation.
