Burr Ridge, Illinois (February 3, 2018) –  A 46-year-old Glen Ellyn man succumbed to injuries following a collision Wednesday morning on Interstate 294, according to a news release from Illinois State Police.

The accident took place at around 10 a.m. Wednesday, January 31, on I-294 near Burr Ridge.

Illinois state police stated that Paul M. Jehlik was operating driving a Dodge Ram pickup truck north on I-294 near Burr Ridge when his truck struck the guardrail on the right side of the tollway.
