UPDATE: A New Boston, Ill. man died after an accident in Rock Island, Ill. Wednesday afternoon.

Just before 3:00 p.m. on April 2, 2014, the Rock Island Police Department was called to the scene of an accident on Route 92 in the northbound lanes between 31st and 18th Avenues.

When officers arrived on scene, they found a pickup truck that had run off the road, hit a tree and caught on fire.

Police say other motorists had stopped to help the driver, 60-year-old John R. Schmitt.

Schmitt was taken to the hospital and then transferred to Iowa City Hospitals where he later died from his injuries.

Police are still investigating and ask anyone who witnessed the accident to contact the Rock Island Police Department at 309-732-2677.
