Hindsboro Man Killed in Crash

Monday, 11 February 2013

Officials say no autopsy will be conducted on a Hindsboro man killed in a car crash.

Coles County Chief Deputy Coroner Mike Bennett does say toxicology tests will be done on 50-year-old Michael Simpson, but those results won't be known for a couple of weeks.

The Coles County sheriff's department says Simpson was traveling south on County Road 1820 east early Saturday morning when he lost control of his pick-up truck.

They say Simpson ran off the road and his vehicle overturned numerous times.

Simpson was ejected him from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
