PEORIA HEIGHTS, Ill -- A Peoria Heights man is one of two people dead after two semi-trucks crashed on route 89 in northern Marshall county Wednesday.

Marshall County Coroner David Lenz said 30-year-old Matthew Luna of Peoria Heights and 47-year-old Carl Vanwy of South Haven, Michigan died of smoke inhalation or fire related injuries.

Their two semis collided nearly head-on.

Coroner Lenz said the investigation was on-going to determine which of the drivers might have crossed the center-line.
