Preliminary autopsy results show a Taylorville man died of blunt force injuries in an accident early Saturday morning. According to Christian County Coroner Amy Winans, 59 year-old Michael S. Coleman was pronounced dead at the scene of the three vehicle accident. Reports indicate Coleman crossed the center line into the path of a pick-up truck driven by 20 year-old Dylan Flowers. The two vehicles were then struck by a bus driven by 55 year-old Christine M. Smith.
Flowers was reportedly taken to a Springfield hospital for treatment of what were described as non-life threatening injuries. Smith was apparently uninjured.
Toxicology reports are still pending. The Illinois State Police are investigating the crash
