Fiery Crash Near Collinsville, Illinois Leads To Tragic Event

Two individuals were traveling from Waterloo, Illinois to Bethalto Illinois and subsequently got into a car accident. The accident occurred when their truck traveled off the road on Interstate 255 near Collinsville, Illinois and struck a tree. The impact caused the truck to burst into flames.

The St. Clair County Coroner’s office called the parents of the one of the men to inform them about the accident. The Coroner’s office informed the family that there was nothing left of the man due to the fire. However, when the family went to the crash site, they discovered a disturbing site. The family witnessed some of the remains of their family member had been left behind at the crash site. The father of the man has stated, “it’s their job to take care of the site and they did not do their job.”
