Peytona Man Dies After Racine Car Accident

A man died as a result of injuries sustained in a Racine car accident Monday morning.

According to officials with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department, 31 year-old Travis Dewayne Clendenin, of Peytona, was involved in a traffic crash that occurred shortly after 9:30 a.m. Monday on Route 94 in Racine. Deputies say Clendenin was driving a Chevrolet southbound on Route 94 when he collided with a tractor trailer carrying steel railroad rails, driven by 36 year-old Johnny Fauch Jr.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Department is still looking into the accident, but investigators believe Clendenin’s vehicle crossed the center line into the northbound lane, striking Fauch’s vehicle. Investigators think Clendenin may have fallen asleep at the wheel.

Fauch had one passenger in his vehicle at the time of the accident, but neither were injured in the crash.

Route 94 was shut down until 12:00 p.m. Monday.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ family and friends.
