WILLIAMSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

The Illinois State Police is reporting that a two-vehicle crash on I-57 in Williamson County, Illinois has sent one man to the hospital with major injuries.

The crash happened on Sunday, Nov. 20 around 8:30 a.m. at the 55 mile post on I-57. 

Authorities say Jerry W. Ingram, 33, of Oakfield, TN was driving a 2007 Freightliner truck tractor with a semi-trailer when he ran into a Chevrolet Trailblazer, later determined to be driven by Mark T. King, 48, of Houston, MS.

John A. King, 45, of Houston, MS, was a passenger in Mark T. King's vehicle. He was not injured.

Ingram was also uninjured.
