A 55-year-old Peoria man was found dead in the middle of a roadway in unincorporated Peoria early Wednesday morning. 

The Peoria County Coroner was called to the intersection of South East Lane and Augustana around 4:30 a.m. on a report of a man found dead in the road. The man was identified as Glen Webb. 

The coroner said Webb had been hit by a car,but an autopsy confirmed he had suffered a medical event before falling. The coroner said he was run over by a vehicle after he already collapsed.
