According to MyPlainView.com, the Illinois State Police have revealed new details about a car crash that occurred early Wednesday morning in southwest Illinois.

The ISP states that a GMC Yukon driven by Eric Barnett, a 25 year old resident of Adrian, Michigan, crossed over the center line on Interstate 57 in the face of an oncoming semi-truck. The accident occurred near Mile Marker 32.5, approximately between the Illinois 146 exit and the Lick Cred Road exit.

The semi-truck had been proceeding southbound on I-57 when it encountered the Yukon going northbound in the southbound lane. The resulting crash killed Michael A. Villalobos, 26, of Tulia, Texas, Taylor D. Garza, 25, of Adrian Michigan, and a three month old child, not identified. Both vehicles were thrown off the roadway.
