Macomb man dies weeks after his truck hit by train
MACOMB - A Macomb man whose pickup truck was hit by a freight train last month died Monday at a Peoria hospital.
James Ingledue, 56, was pronounced dead at 2:40 p.m. at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll said.
Ingersoll said Ingledue died from multiple injuries he suffered at about 10:45 p.m. July 27 on Bower Road in Macomb.
Police previously said Ingledue was driving his pickup south when it left the road and struck the pole that houses the railroad crossing gate.
Ingledue was partially ejected after his truck flipped onto its side and came to rest with its back end on the railroad tracks. A Burlington Northern Santa Fe freight train then struck the truck.
Ingledue was communicating with a passer-by after the first accident but was unconscious after the train hit his truck, police said. The passer-by tried unsuccessfully to get the train to stop before the accident.
