Icy road conditions are believed to be the cause of a crash Saturday night that resulted in the death of a 31-year-old Tremont woman. Tazewell County Coroner Dennis Conover reports Nicole Clark was driving southbound on Interstate 155 when she crossed the median at mile marker 15 and hit a minivan.
Clark was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities say she was not wearing a seat belt. An autopsy shows she died of a broken neck.
There were two occupants in the mini-van who were transported to Hopedale Medical Complex for treatment of non life threatening injuries.
