According to a news release from Illinois State Police, just before 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Brandi K. Bennet was driving southbound on Ernest Reed Road, just north of Thomas Road, when for "unknown reasons" she left the east side of the roadway, struck a ditch, and rolled her vehicle. The vehicle came to rest on its roof.
The Saline County coroner pronounced Bennet dead at the scene. Bennet had one passenger in her car at the time of the crash, but he refused medical treatment at the scene.
