The McLean County Coroner has identified the man killed last night by an auto on Grove Street in Bloomington. 73-year old Leon Forrestal of Urbana was walking to his car after conducting business at a nearby home when police say another vehicle hit him in the dark, fog, and glare of the lights of an oncoming vehicle. Forrestal was also wearing dark clothing. Coroner Beth Kimmerling says the cause of death is blunt force trauma and police say alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
