A car crash just north of Philo occurred Monday morning and claimed the life of a 23-year-old University of Illinois student.
According to the county sheriff, the accident occurred on Illinois 130 when the student was traveling west and ran through a stop sign and collided with a tree at the corner of the intersection.
Investigators are trying to determine what caused this fatal accident and are considering the foggy weather and speed of the vehicle. His autopsy is scheduled for later this week.
Our deepest thoughts and condolences are with the friends and family of the victim during this difficult time.
