JACKSON COUNTY -- Emergency responders extricated a 19-year-old Chester man from a vehicle after a crash Saturday morning on Illinois 3 north of Levee Road in Jackson County.

Jackson County sheriff’s deputies identified the accident victim as Dalton Misuraca. He was flown to a St. Louis hospital.

Misuraca was driving a 2005 Ford 500 north on Illinois 3 about 8 a.m. when the vehicle crossed into the southbound lane, leaving the road and striking sand barrels and a concrete building.

In a related incident, authorities cited Robert J. Kendrick of Anna for passing or not pulling over for emergency vehicles responding to an accident.

Gorham Fire Department responders told police a 2004 Lincoln passed the fire department vehicle, which had its lights and sirens activated, en route to the accident. Responders identified the vehicle and deputies later identified the driver as Kendrick.
