Hebron, IL (May 28, 2020) – The identity of the man killed in a two-vehicle collision in Hebron last week has been identified as Jason Miller, 41, of McHenry, Illinois. Miller was reportedly driving a Chevrolet Cargo Van when the vehicle was struck by a Jeep Grand Cherokee. The collision occurred at the 1500 block of Vanderkarr Road.
The Jeep was reportedly driven by William J. Bishop, 42, of Chicago. Bishop was traveling west on the roadway when, for unknown reasons, he entered into oncoming traffic and collided with Miller’s van. Both Bishop and a passenger in Miller’s vehicle were hospitalized.
Miller was pronounced dead at the scene by responding paramedics. Bishop was cited for improper lane usage. An ongoing investigation into the crash is currently underway.
