A Bridgeview man was killed early Saturday in a three-vehicle crash authorities said was caused by a car driving against traffic on Interstate 80 in Morris.

Abed M. Bader, 66, was dead at the scene.

The crash happened just after midnight between mile markers 106 and 107, according to the Illinois State Police.

They said a westbound car driving in the eastbound lanes struck Bader’s car head-on, then Bader was hit again by a semi-truck.,

Bader’s son, Anees Bader, said his father had a regular route delivering medicine to nursing homes and that he “was on his way home from his final stop,” in Spring Valley.

“He’s been doing it for quite awhile,” Anees Bader said.

The driver of the wrong-way car was taken to Morris Hospital with serious injuries. The truck driver wasn’t hurt.
