PEORIA — A Lowpoint man died Monday night after his SUV hit a pickup truck in Woodford County. A second man was injured.

Gary Lutz, 56, died at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center's emergency room, said Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll.

Lutz was driving south on Illinois 26 at Coon Creek Road when his SUV crossed the center line and hit a truck driven by John Calder. Lutz's SUV returned to the southbound lane, went off the road and into a group of trees. He was thrown from the vehicle.

Ingersoll said Calder was taken to OSF Saint Francis, but had no other information.

An inquest and toxicology results are pending.
