A single vehicle accident has claimed the life of a Peoria businessman.

49-year-old Paul T. Jacob died Tuesday evening after being ejected from the vehicle he was driving on Princeville-Jubilee Road.

The accident happened just south of the Parks School Road intersection around 5:45 p.m. Jacob was the president of Brewers Distributing in Peoria.

Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood says Jacob’s vehicle veered off the road and hit a utility pole.
