UPDATE: Coroner identifies Armstrong man killed in two-vehicle collision

FLATVILLE — An Armstrong man died Saturday in a two-vehicle crash at a rural intersection in eastern Champaign County.

Lorin A. Schluter, 59, was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:06 p.m. Saturday, according to Champaign County Coroner Duane Northrup.

According to official reports, the driver later identified as Schluter was driving a Pontiac Grand Prix west on County Road 2500 N near Penfield at about 1:30 p.m. Champaign County Sheriff's Sgt. Andrew Good said Schulter apparently ran a stop sign and collided with a northbound Dodge Ram pickup truck at the intersection of 2500 N and 2500 E.

Schluter's vehicle was struck on the driver's side when he entered the intersection, the coroner's report said.

And both vehicles ended up in a corn field on the northwest corner, Good said.

A man in the truck and his adult grandson received non-life-threatening injuries. Good said the pickup driver did not have a stop sign.

The intersection is about 4 miles east of Flatville.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Monday, according to the coroner's office, and an inquest may be held at a later date. The accident remains under investigation by the sheriff and the coroner.
