CHERRY VALLEY - A man is dead after an early morning car accident.
It happened around 12:30am near the intersection of Perryville and Harrison.
Police say a Chevy Impala, driven by 21 year-old Jonathan Brooks, was headed eastbound on Harrison. Brooks apparently failed to slow down and rear-ended a semi trailer.
Brooks was taken to the Neuro Intensive Care Unit at OSF St. Anthony Medical Center, but succumbed to his injuries at 7:52am. The coroner says he died of blunt force trauma to the head. It was determined Brooks was intoxicated at the time of the accident.
The semi driver was uninjured.
