A vehicle crash in Montgomery County left one man dead and three others wounded on Sunday afternoon. A preliminary investigation by the Illinois State Police shows that a camouflage Polaris UTV driven by 44-year-old Chad Stewart was traveling west on North 20th Avenue approaching 1600 East in Montgomery County. Stewart failed to stop at a stop sign and was struck by 67-year-old Delmar Pray of Nokomis, who was in a Dodge SUV.
The collision overturned the Polaris ejecting Stewart. He was transported by ambulance to an area hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. Pray, along with a 64-year-old female Marsha Pray, and a 13-year-old juvenile were all transported to an area hospital with minor injuries. The crash is still under investigation.
