A 66-year-old man died from multiple injuries he suffered when his vehicle collided with another vehicle Wednesday in Minooka, according to the Will County Coroner’s Office.

At 1:07 p.m. Wednesday, Arthur T. Surges, 66, of Minooka, was pronounced dead at the Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center emergency room in Joliet, the coroner’s office said.

Surges was reportedly the driver of a vehicle that collided with another vehicle at Ridge Road and Interstate 80 in Minooka. The Minooka Police Department is investigating the incident.

Preliminary results from an autopsy performed Thursday revealed Surges died from multiple injuries.

The final cause and manner of death will be determined later.
