Investigation into the scene of an accident which occurred at 12:04 pm on 2/22/13 revealed that Ivan Leisner, 87, Weldon, and Russell Ritter, 51, Clinton, were both traveling westbound on IL Route 10. Ritter stated he had just passed Leisner due to slow speeds, when a funeral procession was traveling eastbound. A snowplow truck, also westbound, stopped in the roadway for the procession.
