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.

The man driving the Lincoln, who was also the only person in his vehicle, was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, said Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Jeff Liskh.

As of Wednesday morning, the cause of the crash remained under investigation and no charges or citations have been filed, Liskh said.
