A Seneca man was killed on the evening of Tuesday, September 17th, 2013 after rolling his car on Illinois 170 in La Salle County. The man, Robert Derewjanko, was 56 years old. The cause of the single car accident is still not clear, according to Grundy County Coroner John W. Callahan who has been charged with investigating the accident in conjunction with the La Salle County Sheriff’s Department.
It is believed however that Derewjanko was travelling south on Illinois 170 when his car left the road, rolled over several times and Derewjanko was ejected from the vehicle. He was taken to Morris Hospital where he was pronounced dead just before 8 p.m. There do not appear to have been any witnesses to the incident and the investigation is ongoing.
