Gardner man killed after car collision in Monee Township: coroner

A Gardner man died after he was involved in a car collision in Monee Township.

On Tuesday, the Will County Coroner’s Office said in a news release that Charles Butcher, 69, was pronounced deceased at 7:33 p.m. Monday near the intersection of South Kuersten and West Pauling roads in Monee Township.

“Mr. Butcher was the driver of a vehicle that collided with another vehicle,” coroner officials said.

The Will County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident.

An autopsy was performed Tuesday and a preliminary cause showed Butcher suffered multiple injuries because of the car collision, according to the coroner’s office.

The final cause and manner of Butcher’s death will be determined at a later date pending the outcome of police, autopsy and toxicological reports.
