LYNDON, Ill. -- Authorities say a 23-year-old man was killed and eight people injured when a van carrying the Utah band Dark Seas overturned on Interstate 88 in northwestern Illinois.
Whiteside County Sheriff Kelly Wilhelmi says the crash occurred shortly after noon Monday, about three miles east of Lyndon. He tells Sauk Valley Media the band's van was eastbound when the driver apparently fell asleep at the wheel.
The van traveled about 1,000 feet before rolling and landing on its side.
The man who died was thrown from the van and pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities haven't identified him.
Wilhelmi says the passengers were taken to CGH Medical Center in Sterling with unknown injuries.
The Salt Lake City' band's Facebook page says it was en route to a show in Chicago.
