UPDATE: The man killed in a car crash Tuesday has been identified as Robert Skeans, 78, of Yorkville.

He died after he was injured in a two-vehicle crash at 7:26 a.m. Tuesday on County Highway A at 55th Drive, according to officials with the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.

All three people involved in the crash  — the passenger and driver in a Toyota Yaris, and the driver of a Ford F-150 pick-up truck — were taken to Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare — All Saints to be treated for their injuries.

The 72-year-old man, who was a passenger in the Toyota, died while being treated in the hospital.
