By DAILY NEWS STAFF
A second person has died from injuries suffered in a weather-related accident on Illinois Route 33 Thursday.
Madison L. Brock, 15, Palestine, died at 6:51 p.m. Sunday at Carle Foundation Hospital, Urbana. She was a passenger in a 1999 Ford Ranger involved in a two-vehicle crash about one-half mile east of Palestine.
The truck was driven by her mother, Angela G. Brock, 48, who died later that night in the Crawford Memorial Hospital emergency room, Robinson.
According to Illinois State Police, the Brocks were westbound when their truck slid sideways on ice. The Ford crossed into the path of an eastbound 2003 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck driven by Sean M. Redman, 22, Robinson, and was struck in the passenger side door.
Brock was a sophomore at Palestine High School. Grief counselors were at the school Friday and were to return today and Tuesday to help students and staff cope with the situation.
Redman was taken to Deaconess Hospital, Evansville. Reports that he has been released could not be confirmed at presstime.
An investigation into the crash is continuing.
Funeral arrangements for both Brocks are pending at Goodwine Funeral Home, Palestine.
A Palestine woman is dead and two other county residents have been hospitalized after a weather-related accident on Illinois Route 33 at the intersection with 1725th Street in Palestine in front of the ethanol plant Thursday night.
Angela G. Brock, 48, was pronounced dead in the Crawford Memorial Hospital emergency room at 6:21 p.m. by Crawford County Coroner Earl Deckard. She had suffered massive chest injuries.
According to Illinois State Police, Brock was westbound in a black 1999 Ford Ranger when it slid sideways on ice a half-mile west of Palestine. The Ford crossed into the path of an eastbound white 2003 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck driven by Sean M. Redman, 22, Robinson, and was struck in the passenger side door.
Rescue crews fought against below-freezing temperatures and biting winds tearing across the fields north of Rt. 33.
Brock's truck was sitting in the passenger lane when emergency personnel worked to remove her and her daughter, Madison L. Brock, 15, from the vehicle. The cab was almost knocked off of the crumpled frame of the truck and workers had to cut away the passenger side door to remove one of the women.
The truck driven by Redman was in the ditch between the roadway and the train tracks, its front folded inward by the collision. Redman was conscious when he was removed from the wreck by emergency personnel.
Angela Brock was taken to CMH by United Life Care Ambulance. Madison Brock was taken to Carle Foundation Hospital, Urbana, while Redman was taken to Deaconess Hospital, Evansville.
Deckard said an investigation into the wreck is continuing. No autopsy is planned on Brock, however.
