A long-time member of the Coal City Police Department was killed in a single vehicle accident that occurred on Pine Bluff Road around 10:45 p.m. on Thursday, June 25th.

Grundy County Coroner John Callahan said William Klegman, 66, of Coal City was eastbound on Pine Bluff Road, just east of Route 47 when he entered into the ditch.

Callahan said it appears Klegman was traveling at a slow rate of speed and may have been suffering from a medical condition.  Klegman was transported to Morris Hospital where he later died.

On their Facebook page on Friday, the Coal City Police Department said their deepest condolences goes out to the Klegman family. Police Chief Tom Best told WCSJ that Klegman was retired from the force and spent many years as a Sergeant.
