A woman from Staunton has been identified as the victim of a traffic crash in St. Jacob.  The Madison County Corner’s Office says 37-year-old Rebecca L. Brandt died after she lost control of her car in snowy conditions while traveling on U.S. 40 and struck on oncoming truck. 

The driver of the truck and a passenger were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  Illinois State Police report Brandt was traveling eastbound on U.S. 40 around 6pm Wednesday when she lost control and hit the westbound truck about three miles west of North Douglas Road.
