GLASFORD, Ill. -- Police are investigating a fatal rollover crash at the intersection of Todd School Road and Martin Weber Road in Glasford.

The Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll has identified the victim as Jolene Brooks, 37, of Glasford.

Ingersoll said Brooks was driving westbound on Todd School Road when her jeep crossed over the opposite lane and into a ravine. The jeep hit an embankment and rolled onto its top.

A passerby reported the crash around 3:30 a.m. but it is unclear when it actually occurred.

Brooks was pronounced dead at the scene just before 5 a.m.

An autopsy showed she died of head injuries.
