A LeRoy man has died from injuries he received in a weather-related crash early Thursday in DeWitt County.

Champaign County Coroner Duane Northrup said Jordan Reinhart-Smith, 28, died at Carle Foundation Hospital at 9:16 a.m. Friday.

Illinois State Police said Mr. Reinhart was driving east on Interstate 74 near Farmer City about 4:30 a.m. Thursday when he lost control of his pickup truck on an icy bridge deck.

His truck hit a guardrail and concrete wall and came to a stop, then was hit by a semi truck.

State police handled multiple interstate crashes and slide-offs Thursday morning as damp highways refroze after Wednesday's snow melt.

The highway was shut down for investigation and cleanup about an hour.
