A Pana man was pronounced dead early this morning after a crash on Route 51 in Macon County.


80-year-old Phillip Jacobs died from injuries sustained in the accident on Labor Day. He was the passenger in a vehicle involved in the crash on Route 51 at Andrews Street Road.


Jacobs was transported to Decatur Memorial Hospital and then to Memorial Medical Center later that same day for trauma care. Because of the length of time he was an inpatient and the amount of testing he received at both hospitals, there will not be an autopsy on Jacobs.
