A Wilton man was killed due to injuries sustained in last night’s storm.

Authorities received a missing person report near Hecker Lake in McLean County around 1 o’clock this morning.

Deputies arrived and found 42-year-old Jerry Kellar deceased.

Authorities say it appears Kellar went outside his camper to possibly secure the property when a gust of wind hit the camper, blowing it over on him and causing the camper to continue rolling into the lake.

Two other injuries were reported in McLean county as well, neither life threatening.

Authorities report over 30 campers tipped over across McLean County.
