The driver of the truck was Jack D. Roach Jr., 50, of Anna.  He sustained serious injuries and was taken to Heartland Regional Medical Center.

The truck driver had two passengers on board.  Smith was killed in the crash.  Jack D. Roach Sr., 74, of Anna, was flown by helicopter to Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau.

Illinois State Police have charged Bible, the driver of the Camaro, with failure to secure a child in child restraints, failure to wear a seatbelt, failure to reduce speed, driving on a suspended license and speeding.
