1-year-old, 3-year-old killed in Southern Illinois crash

Three people, including a 3-year-old girl and 1-year-old boy, died Thursday morning in a three-vehicle crash on US 45 in Massac County.

The crash happened around 6:23 a.m. Thursday on USA 45, south of Illinois Route 169.

According to a news release from the Illinois State Police District 22, at about 6:23 a.m., Rachel E. Killian, 23, of Marion, was driving her red 2011 Kia Soul north on US 45 when she left the right side of the road. She then overcorrected and crossed into the southbound lane. Her vehicle ran off the right side of the roadway.

Drivers of two other vehicles: 57-year-old Karla Reichert of Karnak, Illinois, and 62-year-old Cathy Ulen of Ullin, Illinois, were traveling south. The only person restrained in the vehicle was the nine-month-old. After the head-on collision, an SUV driven by 62-year-old Cathy Ulen of Ullin rear-ended Reichert's vehicle. One of the 3-year-old girls was pronounced dead at the hospital. A 3-year-old girl in the auto was taken to Baptist Health Paducah, where she was pronounced dead.

The children, ages 1 and 3 years old, were not restrained in vehicle seats at the time of the crash, according to The Southern Illinoisan. A 3-year-old passenger in Killian's vehicle later died because of injuries from the crash.

All lanes of US 45 were closed for 3.5 hours for a crash investigation and cleanup. The investigation into the crash continues.
