A Granite City woman was killed Tuesday afternoon in a traffic accident on Highway 203 near Interstate 270. The victim has been identified as 28 year old Jessica Gibson of the 3200 block of Carlson Avenue. The accident took place just after 5pm Tuesday when authorities say Gibson appeared to be turning left from the eastbound I-270 offramp onto the southbound lanes of 203 when her car was hit by a northbound driver.
The driver of the truck, a Granite City man, and his juvenile son, were taken to Gateway Regional Medical Center for evaluation and treatment. Gibson was pronounced dead at the scene as a result of head injuries. She was wearing her seatbelt. The Illinois State Police is investigating the crash.
