PEORIA, Ill. -- A Kewanee woman was killed in a three car crash on Thursday.

Sally Harper, 79, of 321 E. Central Boulevard was pronounced dead at 3 p.m. at the OSF Saint Francis Medical Center Emergency Room.

She was transported to Peoria by helicopter from Kewanee Hospital.

Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll said that Harper was driving northbound on Route 78 with her husband at around noon when her car drifted into the southbound lane.
