Autopsies are tentatively scheduled Thursday for two men who were killed Tuesday night in a five-vehicle crash in the 135000 block of U.S. 67.
Dennis A. Swinford Jr., 35, of Sherrard, and Terrence T. McClay, 35, of Aledo, were pronounced dead at the scene, Rock Island county Coroner Brian Gustafson said.
The crash happened at 6:48 p.m. in the 13500 block of U.S. 67.
The preliminary investigation shows that a northbound vehicle entered the southbound lane and struck a southbound vehicle head-on, according to the Rock Island County Sheriff’s Office.
Three other vehicles became involved in the crash at or near the initial head-on collision, according to the sheriff’s office.
Four people were transported to a local hospital with serious injuries, while two other people declined additional medical treatment after being checked at the scene by paramedics.
The crash remains under investigation. No other information was released Thursday.
