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.
