A 67-year-old Troy woman died in a two-car crash Friday evening in Madison County.
Illinois State Police said the decedent is Kathleen E. Milton, who was driving a Chevrolet HHR on Illinois 140 in the Meadowbrook area. Her vehicle was hit from behind by a Chevrolet Lumina driven by Kimberly D. Braun, 34, of White City.
Both drivers were eastbound. Braun told police that Milton suddenly stopped in the middle of the roadway. Braun said she didn't have time to stop her vehicle, and it rear-ended Milton's.
Braun's car then went through a ditch, through a fence and rolled.
Braun suffered injuries and was taken to Saint Louis University Hospital.
A 7-year-old boy in Braun's car suffered injuries and was taken to Alton Memorial Hospital.
The crash happened near West Lanterman Drive.
