DeKALB – A 67-year-old DeKalb man died Sunday night after a two-vehicle crash on Route 23 north of Perry Road, authorities said.

Terry R. Gile, of the 10400 block of Perry Road, was driving his Ford Expedition south on Route 23 about 5 p.m. when a northbound Dodge pickup spun on the ice in front of him. The pickup spun so it stopped in the southbound lane facing south, and Gile's Expedition rear-ended it, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff's office.

Gile and a passenger in the pickup, Lora Olson, 42, of DeKalb, were taken to Kishwaukee Hospital in DeKalb, where Gile died a short time later, police said. The pickup's driver, Patricia Fisher, 45, of DeKalb, was not injured.
