UPDATE: PEORIA, Ill. -- A 79-year-old man has died after his vehicle overturned on I-74 Thursday.

Richard Ulrich of Morton was pronounced deceased at OSF at 7:10 p.m. after fire officials pulled him from the flipped car.

Just after 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Ulrich was reportedly traveling eastbound on the ramp connecting I-74 and War Memorial Drive when his car crossed a grassy median, turned to the right and hit a concrete wall, then hit another car and overturned.

A man and child in the struck vehicle suffered minor injuries.

Autopsy results show he died of multiple blunt force injuries. Officials said heart disease my have been a contributing factor, but autopsy could not confirm that for sure.
