A 69-year-old Trenton man died Sunday when the driver of another car failed to yield at a stop sign in rural St. Clair County.
Donn B. Evans was driving westbound on North Grove School Road near Summerfield in his 2018 Ford pickup truck when he came to an intersection at Dressel-Schoene Road, a press release from the sheriff’s department said.
Though Evans had right-of-way, the driver of a 1997 Ford SUV did not stop before entering the intersection and struck Evans’ truck on the driver’s side.
Evans was taken to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in O’Fallon, and died there later due to his injuries. The driver of the SUV, Andrea M. Frein, 35, of New Baden, was flown to a nearby hospital with unknown injuries, police said.
