Illinois State Police say a Lawrenceville, Illinois man died Wednesday afternoon in a two vehicle accident on US 50, about a half mile east of Illinois Route-One.

74-year-old David Dooley was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Dooley was westbound on 50 when his car left the roadway in heavy rain, struck a guardrail and then spun around in the roadway.

His car then hit an eastbound van driven by 23-year-old Billy Lee Hillyard of Vincennes.

Hillyard was treated for minor injuries at Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes.

Police say both drivers were wearing their seat belts.
