Chicago man dies in I-39 crash in Lee County

ROCHELLE – A Chicago man died from injuries suffered in a rollover accident shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday on Interstate 39 just north of the U.S. Route 30 exit, between Steward and Paw Paw.

Joseph L. Clark, 23, died later at Rochelle Community Hospital, the Illinois State Police said in a news release this morning.

Clark was southbound in a 2005 Nissan minivan, which left the roadway and rolled several times, throwing him from the van, the release said.

No further information, including whether he was wearing a seat belt or if speed was a factor, was available Friday.

An autopsy will be done Wednesday, the Ogle County coroner’s office said.
