According to the LaSalle County Coroner’s Office, an Ottawa man died early Friday morning in an accident between a car and a person near Peru on Route 251.

His name was given as 25-year-old Jerome E. Johnson from Ottawa.

Illinois State Police say Johnson was in a single-vehicle rolling accident, was thrown out of his car, and was then hit by another car.

According to the coroner’s office, an exam showed that Johnson died from multiple injuries he got in the crash. It is still being looked into.
