ZEIGLER – One man is dead and another person seriously injured following a head-on collision in Zeigler.

The incident occurred at 10:39 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 18, just north of the intersection of Mayberry Lane and Route 148.

Body found in Pankey Creek in Harrisburg

A 50-year-old woman from Christopher was traveling northbound along Illinois Route 148 in a blue Buick Encore, the Illinois State Police said.

At the same time, a 44-year-old male from Du Quoin was traveling southbound along Illinois Route 148 in a white Nissan Sentra.

For an unknown reason, the 50-year-old crossed into the southbound lane and struck the vehicle of the 44-year-old head on, ISP said.
