Illinois Man Dies, Raising Storm Death Toll To 3 In State (WRSP)

A northern Illinois man has died after being struck by a tree during a powerful Midwestern storm, raising the death toll for the regional storms to four.

Peoria County's coroner says David A. Johnson, 31, of Ottawa died Wednesday of severe head trauma at a Peoria hospital.

Johnson was in a backyard with his spouse and father-in-law Tuesday when the storm uprooted a tree that landed on them. His father-in-law, Wayne Tuntland, 76 was killed. His spouse was treated at a hospital.

Thomas McCord, 71, also died Tuesday when an apparent tornado struck a building in Crossville, in southern Illinois.
