Entry Description

Jasper County-A carful of students driving home from college were involved in a fatal car crash on I-65 north bound just north of the Remington exit (mile marker 205) this afternoon, May 4th, 2013.

Preliminary investigation by Master Trooper Scott Balch revealed that, at approximately 1:53 P.M., a 2003 Ford Explorer, driven by Mario L. Guagliardo, 20 of Deerfield, Illinois, was north bound in the right lane when the right tire blew and caused him to lose control. The Explorer veered to the right, came back left, and rolled approximately 3 times; it came to rest upright in the left lane.

Jacob M. Newman, 20 of LaGrange, Illinois was the front seat passenger; he was wearing his seat belt and was not injured.

Michael D. Rende, 20 of LaGrange, Illinois was seated in the back seat behind Guagliardo. Rendy was ejected out of the Explorer and came to rest in the roadway. He was airlifted to Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois with life threatening injuries. His family has been notified. He was not wearing a seat belt.

Jason L. Blackman, 20 of Wilmette, Illinois, was seated in the back middle seat. He was taken to Jasper County Hospital in Rensselaer with ankle and ribs injury.

John J. Malone Junior, 20 of River Forest, Illinois was seated in the back seat behind Rendy. Malone was not wearing his seat belt and was ejected out of the Explorer with the Explorer coming to rest on him. Malone was pronounced dead at the scene by the Jasper County Coroner of massive blunt force trauma. Malone’s family has been notified.

Guagliardo (driver) was taken to Jasper County Hospital with injuries to his hands, elbow, and face. He was wearing his seat belt.

Alcohol/drugs are not a factor in this crash.

All lanes north bound were closed for investigation of the crash, removal of the injured, deceased, and vehicle, landing of the air ambulance, and clean-up of the roadway. All traffic was diverted off at the 201 mile marker (Wolcott/Remington exit).
