The Winnebago County Coroner released the identity of the man who was killed in a fatal collision.
The Coroner says 69-year old Steven O’Rourke died from the accident. On Friday, Winnebago County Sheriffs Deputies were called to a scene just west of the IL 251 and RT 173 intersection around 5:30 p.m. That’s where officials found a Chervrolet Corvette on it’s roof.
Police say the Corvette went airborne and rolled over while driving South on 251. It came to a rest on it’s roof after hitting a car stopped at Ralston Road.
O’Rourke’s cause of death was determined to be blunt trauma to the head, the Winnebago County Coroner reported on Monday.
