An Army veteran is dead after a crash near Newark.

The Grundy County Coroner says 25-year old Ryan Horne of Yorkville was at the intersection of Newark and Lisbon Road last night when for whatever reason he left the road and was thrown from his car.  He was taken to Morris Community Hospital and died minutes later.

The coroner says there were witnesses to the crash and more details could come later during the investigation.  No one else was injured.

Horne was staying with his mom in Yorkville after returning home from a tour of duty in the Army.
