PEORIA, Ill (HOI) -- -

A Peoria man is dead after a late night car crash on the city's northwest side. 

Zachary Gardner, 47, died in a single-vehicle accident in the 6700 block of Frostwood Parkway last Sunday evening. Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood said Gardner apparently lost control of his 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee and struck a tree. It is unclear if Gardner was wearing a seatbelt and what caused him to lose control of his vehicle. 

Gardner died of severe blunt force trauma. Toxicology results are pending. No further information is available. The accident is still under investigation.
