One person killed in Morgan County traffic accident

One person is dead after their car ran off the highway just west of Jacksonville on Wednesday.

According to Morgan County Coroner Jeff Lair, a 51-year-old man struck a guard rail and ran off the road at the interchange of U.S. 67 and IL-104 around 3 p.m.

No other significant injuries were reported.

Lair said it is possible a medical event contributed to the accident. An autopsy will be conducted Thursday.

The man's name will not be released until his family is notified.
