A 54-year-old man was killed in a crash Tuesday evening in south suburban Peotone.
William H. Heisner, of Peotone, was driving a Toyota Prius about 5:45 p.m. when his car collided with a Lincoln in the intersection of Route 45 and Offner Road in Peotone, according to Illinois State Police and the Will County coroner’s office.
Heisner, who was the only person in the Prius, was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:05 p.m., authorities said. An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday and the final cause and manner of death are pending police, autopsy and toxicology reports.
