A 25-year-old woman from Momence was killed in an accident yesterday on Illinois Route 1/17 when her vehicle crossed over the center line, resulting in a head-on collision with an oncoming truck. Authorities pronounced the woman, identified as Crystal Zavala, dead at the scene, while her 6-year-old daughter who had been in the back seat of the car was airlifted to a hospital. There has been no update yet on the condition of the daughter.
Zavala was driving her 1998 Chrysler on Route 1/17 when, around 7:30 am, her vehicle crossed the center line, striking a Ford vehicle driven by a 58-year-old woman whose identity and condition have not yet been released.
Our thoughts go out to the victims of this accident and their loved ones.
