Fatal Kane County “Head-On Collision” 

A fatal head-on crash occurred Thursday (November 29, 2018) along IL Route 64 in unincorporated Virgil Township.  This head-on crash involved a pickup truck and semi truck.

According to information provided by the Kane County Sheriff’s Office (as seen in the November 30, 2018 Kane County Connects article titled “School District 301 PE Teacher Killed In Head-On Crash On Route 64“) sheriff’s deputies were called to the accident scene at approximately 9:00 a.m.   The accident scene was on Route 64 east of Prairie Street.

An excerpt from the article regarding this fatal head-on crash:

The initial investigation indicates that a Chevy Colorado driven by Michael Cessna of Sycamore was traveling east on Route 64 and for an unknown reason crossed the center line of the road and was struck by a westbound semi-tractor driven by John Lantz, 54, of Rockford.

Cessna, the sole occupant of the Chevy Colorado, was pronounced deceased at the scene. Lantz was transported to Delnor Hospital for apparent non-life-threatening injuries.

Cessna was 64 years old and was a Central School District physical education teacher.

It is unknown as to why the pickup truck crossed the center line and went into the opposing lane of traffic, resulting in the “head-on collision.”

The accident remains under investigation by the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team.
