Illinois State student dies after being hit by a vehicle

A student from Illinois State University was struck by a car on a Saturday morning, and reports have now come out that the student has passed away. He was 20 years old, and he was from Crystal Lake. The accident, however, happened in Normal.

The young man was taken by medical crews to Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, where attempts to save his life were made. However, his official time of death was 10:15 a.m. on the following Tuesday.

The wreck took place on College Avenue, close to both Fell Avenue and a crosswalk. The man was hit by another young man, who is just 21 years old. That man has now been arrested both for driving after he had consumed alcohol and for leaving after being involved in an accident, as he fled the scene. The crash was not reported until other people found the young man lying in the road.

The driver who was allegedly the one to cause the accident was also a student at the same university. As of the latest reports, he had not yet posted bond and so remained behind bars. Bail has been set at $750,000 in his case, and he would also have to post an additional $25.

The university released a lengthy statement after the crash, and they also said that they are going to provide services for counseling if students would like to make use of them.

After a wrongful death in a tragic accident like this, the families of those who have been killed must be aware of all of their legal rights to compensation.
