Icy road led to Mascoutah man's death in crash, police say


MASCOUTAH — A man from Belleville was killed in a crash early Sunday morning when his car began sliding on ice, the Illinois State Police said Monday.

Keith D. Kunze, 42, was traveling west on Mascoutah Avenue in a 2006 Mercedes-Benz S sedan just after midnight when he lost control due to icy conditions, a preliminary police investigation found.

The car left the roadway and began spinning as it crossed Plum Hill School Road, then overturned when it hit a ditch, police said. Kunze was killed in the crash, they said.

This story was updated with the correct hometown of Keith Kunze. Illinois State Police initially identified Kunze as being from Mascoutah.
