ISU student killed in fatal crash

An ISU student was killed early Sunday morning as a result of a two-vehicle crash.

Jacob Garber, a 20-year-old criminal justice student at ISU from Morton,  was identified as the victim of the accident by McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling.

Normal rescue personnel received a call to come to the intersection of College Ave. and Mitsubishi Motorway at about 5 a.m., Kimmerling said.

Despite Garber’s use of a seatbelt, he was pronounced dead on the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle, Braiton A. Holloway of Bloomington, and his two passengers were transported from the scene to Advocate BroMenn Medical Center to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Braiton was arrested for aggravated DUI after his injuries were treated. Normal Police Chief Rick Bleichner said police had probable cause to arrest Braiton for driving under the influence, and he is  being held at the McLean County Jail waiting for the charges to be reviewed.

Normal Police traffic crash reconstruction specialists are currently investigating to determine the cause of the accident.

Garber’s autopsy was conducted Monday and results are pending.
