The victim was identified by McHenry County Coroner’s office as Daniel P. Anderson, 43, of Woodstock. Anderson was located unconscious in the roadway when crews arrived and transported by WFRD to Centegra Hospital – Woodstock, where he was pronounced deceased.
Approximately one minute prior to the report of the crash, WPD received a report of a male subject matching the description of Anderson walking eastbound in the westbound traffic lane along Highway 14.
