EAST PEORIA — An East Peoria man injured Monday in an accident on Interstate 74 died Tuesday at a Peoria hospital.
Wayne Farrow, 39, of 220 Chicago St. was pronounced dead at 6:10 p.m. at OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center, according to Jamie Harwood, the Peoria County coroner.
About 6:30 p.m. Monday, Farrow was driving a Ford F150 pickup truck east on I-74 at Pinecrest Drive in East Peoria when the load a flatbed semi-trailer in front of him was carrying — a combine — struck the overpass.
Debris from the combine struck the hood and cab portion of Farrow's truck, Harwood stated in a news release he issued Wednesday. Critical injuries to Farrow resulted.
Farrow was transported to St. Francis, but his condition continued to decline, according to Harwood. He died of traumatic head injuries. No autopsy was performed.
Illinois State Police are investigating.
