Law enforcement authorities have identified the two people killed Wednesday night in a traffic crash near Elgin.
It happened at around 6:20 p.m. on Hwy 95 just outside the city limits of Elgin.
Investigators with the Department of Public Safety said a 2015 GMC Terrain was traveling southbound when a tractor trailer turned in front of it. The driver of the GMC -- identified as 46-year-old Christine Renee Jones -- tried to avoid hitting the truck, but instead hit a 2006 Chevy Malibu, driven by 73-year-old Hilton Knox Jr.
Knox died at the scene. Jones was transported to Seton Medical Center where she was declared deceased about an hour later.
