An autopsy will be performed today on a Robinson man who died following a single-vehicle accident early Monday.
Larry McCormick, 73, was declared dead in the Crawford Memorial Hospital emergency room at 3:21 a.m., Crawford County Coroner Earl Deckard told the Daily News.
McCormick was reportedly southwestbound on Illinois Route 1A toward Robinson south of the Prison Road when the 2014 Honda van he was driving ran off the pavement and struck a tree. The wreck is believed to have occurred about 3 a.m.
Chief Deputy Doug Slater said that deputies and United Life Care arrived at the scene and found McCormick unconscious and bleeding. Slater added the driver was not wearing his seat belt at the time of impact.
Robinson firefighters also were called to the scene.
