The death was confirmed by a Kankakee County sheriff’s police spokesman. The collision closed the state highway in both directions at about 8 a.m. while emergency crews worked on the scene. One of the vehicles rolled over and was submerged in water. The victim who was airlifted suffered a major head injury.
