PEORIA COUNTY - A Peoria County coroner's inquest today reveals more about the death of a Morton man in the Interstate 74 crash earlier this summer.


Seventy nine year old Richard Ulrich died of multiple force injuries when his car rolled over several times near the War Memorial exit June 19th.


The Peoria county coroner says he had severe heart disease, but there was no evidence he had a heart attack.


However, Coroner Johnna Ingersoll does say it is possible he had an irregular heart rhythm before the crash.
