I heard on the police scanner last night that a man was hit possibly twice and killed on Route 45 North of Mattoon North of the RR Donnelley factory near the subdivision on the West side of the route.

CECOM (911) dispatched a Coles County Sheriffs Policeman after receiving a call from the guys mom that he was intoxicated and walking in the road. Possible that he may have taken a handful of pills also. The officer said he checked the area and was unable to locate the man. Then goes to talk to the guys mother who apparently lives within the subdivision to speak to her. While there CECOM notifies him that they have a report that someone has just been hit twice while walking in the roadway of Route 45 and is bleeding. The officer advises CECOM to roll EMS if they have not already and responds to the scene. Upon arrival the officer notifies CECOM that he is starting CPR.

The television media last night offered few details what occurred but minimal information that the Coles County Coroner said he died and that he was not releasing his name at that time. It is ashamed they consider themselves media.

Feel free to add additional factual information.

MATTOON - A Tuscola man was killed when he was hit by a vehicle while lying in the road on U.S. Route 45 just north of Mattoon Saturday night.

The man was identified as William D. Glidewell and he was pronounced dead at the scene near the Country Orchard Subdivision, according to Coles County sheriff's Deputy John Clough.

Glidewell was lying in the road's northbound lane when he was hit by the vehicle driven by Danielle Logan of Mattoon, according to Clough. The accident happened about about 5:45 p.m. Saturday.

Thank you, Wandering.

Too bad they didn't report on it last night shortly after it happened. I even beat them to it hours later.
