Illinois state police say 47-year-old Howard Collier of Loves Park was plowed down when he was struck by a mini van while crossing the tollbooth.

The accident happened around 6:20 a.m. Thursday morning. The driver of the van says her brakes failed causing her to strike the man.

Thursday's death happened just a few feet from a memorial set up for a tollbooth attendant who was killed at the Belvidere Plaza in 1986.
