Villa Grove man killed in car crash

VILLA GROVE — A 40-year-old Villa Grove man was pronounced dead at the scene of a single-car crash just east of Villa Grove Tuesday night.

Douglas County Sheriff Charlie McGrew said deputies and emergency workers were sent to a soybean field on County Road 1450 near 1800 E at 9:42 p.m.

They found Frank H. Page outside a 2003 Corvette, dead from traumatic injuries.

McGrew said the preliminary investigation showed that Mr. Page was driving west on 1450 N when his car left the road, hit a ditch embankment and overturned several times.

Not wearing a seat belt, Mr. Page was thrown from the car.

McGrew said deputies believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
