Lomax woman dies in two-car crash

Weather is to blame for the death of a Lomax woman who died from a two-vehicle crash in Henderson County Friday afternoon.

Illinois State Police say Jessica Beasley, 36, was traveling north on Carman Road when she lost control of her vehicle on a snow-covered roadway.

That's when she spun into oncoming traffic.

Police says she was hit on the passenger side of her vehicle by a pick-up truck driven by Brian Nelson, 38, of Macomb.

Beasley was pronounced dead at the scene.

Nelson was taken to an area hospital where he was treated and released with no injuries.
