Illinois State Police says 28-year-old Whitney P. McKenzie of Carmi was killed in a two-vehicle crash in Harrisburg on Wednesday afternoon.
According to ISP, the crash happened at the intersection of Illinois Route 13 and Commercial Street.
ISP's initial investigation indicates McKenzi was driving west on IL 13 when she failed to yield to oncoming traffic before turning onto Commercial Street.
It was at that point that McKenzi's vehicle was struck by a Mack Truck Tractor Semi-Trailer.
McKenzie was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Police say the other driver involved in the crash refused medical attention.
The Illinois State Police Traffic Crash Reconstruction Unit is continuing the investigation. No further information will be released at this time.
