Questions Remain in Deadly Illinois Van Crash

VANDALIA (AP) - Fayette County Coroner Bruce Bowen says none of five men killed when their van repeatedly overturned on Interstate 70 near Vandalia was carrying identification, slowing efforts to notify their survivors.

Bowen says he's managed to identify three of those killed in the Monday morning crash.  Bowen could not say why the dead had no identification. The six other occupants of the 15-passenger van survived.

Illinois State Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says the investigation continues into what caused the accident. She says the van was headed from Ontario, Calif., to Philadelphia. Bond says the van's driver has been ticketed for improper lane usage and driving with a suspended license.
