Illinois State Police have identified a man critically injured in a Tuesday auto crash in Coal Valley, Ill., as Barry Schlafman of Vinton, Iowa.

Schlafman had to be extricated from his 2000 Subaru Forester after a head-on collision at 2:05 p.m. on U.S. 6 near the Niabi Zoo Road intersection.

The 60-year-old was airlifted to Trinity Medical Center, West Campus, Rock Island, and later airlifted again to University Hospitals, Iowa City. He was being treated for head and internal injuries, police said.

A hospital spokesman said there was no information available on Schlafman. By law, patients and their families are allowed to block the disclosure of their medical condition.

According to state police, Schlafman crossed the center line and struck a dump truck driven by Gregory Schoellerman, 58, of East Moline, who did not suffer injuries. Upon colliding, the dump truck rolled over on its side and caught fire, but Schoellerman managed to escape, police said.
