Martin was pronounced dead at the scene at 8 a.m., Darnall said. The driver of the truck, who has not been identified by authorities, suffered what are believed to be minor injuries. He was transported to an area hospital.

The roadway remained blocked for several hours Monday by patrol cars from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department while Illinois State Police accident reconstruction team members conducted their investigation. The road was back open by midday.
