The 25-year-old Momence woman killed in a car crash on Illinois Route 1/17 Thursday morning crossed over the center line when she collided head-on with a truck, Illinois State Police said in a report released Thursday afternoon.


Kankakee County Coroner Bob Gessner said Crystal Zavala was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at 8:16 a.m. He said her 6-year-old daughter, who was sitting in the back seat, was airlifted to a Chicago-area hospital. State police have not released any information about the girl.
