A 67-year-old Danville man died Tuesday after being struck by a vehicle at Circle K gas station in Tilton. Vermilion County Coroner Jane McFadden identified the man as Ronnie Johnson.
Johnson had come into the station for gas. After pumping gas, Johnson went into the gas station to pay while his wife moved their vehicle. When he walked outside, he was stuck by another vehicle pulling into the gas station, according to Tilton Police. The driver of that vehicle told police he simply did not see Johnson walking across the lot.
Johnson was taken to OSF HealthCare Sacred Heart Medical Center where he later died.
The Tilton Police Department and the Vermilion County Coroner’s office continue to investigate. Police say surveillance footage and statements from witnesses will be reviewed.
