Woman killed in utility truck accident in rural Illinois
A 21-year-old woman was killed and another person was injured as a result of a truck accident that occurred in the rural Streator area on Illinois 18.
According to police officials, the accident occurred as the car the two women were riding in crossed the center line and struck a ComEd Utility truck head-on.
The 21-year-old driver was pronounced dead at the scene as a result of the accident. The truck driver was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in order to be treated. A preliminary investigation shows that the woman may have veered off the right side of the road and then overcorrected to the left side.
Our deepest condolences are with the friends and family of the victim at this time.
