Marine, IL (KSDK) - An Illinois man who died in a crash with a tractor-trailer near Marine, Illinois on Thursday has been identified.
Vincent Terrie, 50, was the driver of a car traveling southbound on IL Rt. 4 near Weber Road when it crossed the center line and hit a semi-truck head on. Terrie was killed, but the driver of the semi-truck was not injured.
IL Rt. 4 was closed for several hours between IL Rt. 143 and IL Rt. 140.

Authorities are reminding everyone to drive with caution as many areas of IL Rt. 4 are experiencing whiteout conditions due to blowing snow.
