The Vermilion County sheriff's office and Coroner's office are investigating an accident that killed a Henning man early this (Tues) morning.
Coroner Peggy Johnson said 54-year-old Michael Lacombe was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident on Illinois 119. An autopsy was scheduled Tuesday afternoon.
The accident was discovered around 12:30 am on a stretch of road, near Bowman Road. The route is a curve that goes under a railroad viaduct. Emergency responders said it appeared the driver failed to negotiate the curve.
