ST. JACOB, Ill. > Driver dies in crash * An Arizona man in a classic car was killed in a head-on crash on Illinois Route 4 Thursday morning.

Investigators with the Illinois State Police are investigating the four-vehicle crash that happened at Ellis Road, south of U.S. 40, about 7:30 a.m.

Authorities identified the deceased man as Pasqual L. Rodolpho, 57, of Waddell, Ariz. Rodolpho was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Illinois State Police trooper Calvin Dye Jr. No one else was injured.

Rodolpho was northbound in a 1949 Plymouth sedan when a 2002 Ford pickup pulling a boat in the southbound lanes. The pickup struck the rear of a southbound 2004 Honda, then crossed into the northbound lanes, where it struck Rodolpho's Plymouth head-on.

A northbound tanker truck then struck the Ford.

Route 4 was closed for about six hours as authorities investigated and cleaned up the scene.

Norton, now 25, of the 700 block of Arbor Chase Drive in Wildwood, was given five years' probation in July 2013 after pleading guilty to child endangerment. At the time, she said she regretted her decision to abandon the boy, who survived and was later adopted.

Her probation included a requirement to complete at least 500 hours of community service by Jan. 25, 2014. Court records say she violated probation by failing to provide proof of completing the court-ordered service hours. As a result, St. Louis County Circuit Judge Michael Burton revoked Norton's probation May 22 and sent her to prison for five years.

Norton's attorney could not be reached for comment.
