A car crash is responsible for the death of a key player in the controversy surrounding U.S. Senator Roland Burris and former governor Rod Blagojevich.

Political consultant John Ruff died on Monday afternoon when his BMW convertible smashed into a tree in Kendall County in northeast Illinois.

Police say they don’t know why Ruff drove off the road, but alcohol isn’t to blame.

Ruff was connected to both Senator Burris and Blagojevich through his work on health care issues.

He told the Sun-Times in March that there may have been some pay-to-play between Burris and Blagojevich over the Senate seat.

Before he died, Ruff said that the only way to uncover the truth was to continue investigations into how Burris got his job.

Prosecutors in Sangamon County and a Senate ethics panel are still looking into the Burris Senate appointment.
