Killed While Checking Flat Tire – Early Morning Accident Claims One

Stephenson County, Illinois — June 6, 2017  — Sherrif’s deputies received a call early Tuesday morning about an accident that happened on U.S. 20 where one person is reported to have been hit by a car as he was attempting to change their tire.

Around 7:15 a.m. Tuesday morning Sheriff’s deputies were called out to U.S. Route 20 just east of Browns Mill Road where a driver had reportedly  stopped their car due to a flat tire.

Reports indicate that the driver went to check on the flat tire, when a second vehicle came up behind them in the same lane. The second vehicle is said to have swerved into the center median to try and avoid the driver, however the driver of the first vehicle, seeing the second car proceeding towards them, jumped into the median to avoid the car and instead was hit by the second car.

The person was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities have not yet released the name of either driver in this accident.
