A 67-year-old Troy, Illinois woman is dead following a two-vehicle crash near Meadowbrook Friday night. Illinois State Police Investigators say Kathleen E. Milton of the 500 block of Woodthrush was pronounced dead at the scene, while a 7-year-old passenger was taken to Alton Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. The driver of the other car was airlifted to St. Louis University Hospital with undisclosed injuries.
According to information provided by the State Police, the driver of the other car - 34-year-old Kimberly D.
