Illinois State Police say the truck driven by 66-year-old Joseph Cronin Farmersville Texas broke down and the engine caught fire. Clayton firefighters extinguished the flames.

Adams County Sheriff’s deputies assisted with traffic control and an IDOT salt truck responded to salt down the ice from water used to fight the fire.
