Authorities have identified the 40-year-old Bloomington man killed in a crash Monday night near Ellsworth.

Daniel E. Engler apparently lost control of the car and it flipped over sometime before 7:30 p.m., near Moraine View State Park and Dawson Lake, authorities said. Preliminary autopsy results indicate he died from injuries suffered in the crash, said McLean County Coroner Kathleen Yoder.

The crash remains under investigation by Yoder's office and the McLean County sheriff's office.
