I-74 Accident Victim Dies

A Morton man died Thursday night from injuries he suffered in a one-car crash earlier in the day.

Richard Ulrich, 79, died at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center at 7:10 p.m. Thursday - around four hours after the crash on the I-74 off ramp leading to eastbound War Memorial Drive.

Ulrich's car went into the grassy median of westbound 74, then apparently overcorrected hitting a sign and a wall before flipping on its top and hitting another car.

An autopsy reveals Ulrich, believed to be the lone occupant, died of blunt force injuries.
