Early-morning crash claims Champaign man

URBANA — A Champaign man has died of injuries he sustained in a two-vehicle collision early Friday in northwest Champaign.

Champaign County Coroner Duane Northrup said Justin Shaw, 19, was pronounced dead at 6:35 a.m. at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana of multiple blunt force injuries he received in a crash that happened about three hours earlier.

Champaign police Lt. Bruce Ramseyer said Mr. Shaw was driving an Infiniti south on Duncan Road when he apparently failed to stop at the stop sign for Bloomington Road and collided with a westbound Hummer.

Ramseyer said the driver of that vehicle, Travis Clark, 36, of Mahomet, did not have a stop sign. He was treated at the scene for injuries.

Police learned that both men were on their way home from work. Their vehicles were heavily damaged and had to be towed away.
