A suburban Chicago man is dead, after a freak accident early Monday morning near Madison on Interstate 39/90.
The Wisconsin State Patrol says a tire came off of an eastbound vehicle and was then thrown into the westbound lanes, crashing through the windshield of a car and striking a passenger. The driver of the vehicle then lost control and slid into a concrete barrier along the interstate. The crash happened at about 1:20 this morning.
The passenger, a 55-year-old man from Lombard Illinois, died at the scene. The driver of the vehicle hit by the tire, a 56-year-old man, was not hurt.
