One Killed in 3-Vehicle Accident on SH 104 in Sangamon County, IL

Sangamon County, IL — January 5, 2023, a 42-year-old Pawnee woman died in a three-vehicle accident involving a tractor-trailer on State Highway 104 in Sangamon County.

Authorities say the incident happened shortly before 1:50 p.m. on Illinois 104 near I-55. The cause and circumstances of the accident aren't yet known but preliminary information suggests three vehicles, one of them an 18-wheeler, collided in the area.

The unidentified Pawnee woman was fatally injured in the crash. No other injuries were reported.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.


It's always terrible to learn of another fatal accident on U.S. highways, but in many ways it's much worse to see one with so few clear details. It leaves people wondering if someone they know and care about was involved--and if their fears are confirmed, they deserve to know how and why their loved one's life was lost.

I'm not coming down on authorities for not having all the dots connected so soon after the incident. I just hope they're doing their best to find answers for all the questions that woman's family will undoubtedly have. In the meantime, as always, it's best not to jump to any conclusions before clear facts can tell the story.
