A Granite City man was killed after a pedestrian accident occurred while crossing Chain of Rocks Road.
According to Illinois police, the accident occurred as the 32-year-old woman was struck by a tractor-trailer. Emergency crews arrived to the scene in order to transport the woman to St. Louis University Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
The death was considered an accident and no charges are expected to be filed because the pedestrian was not walking on a crosswalk. The truck driver remained at the scene to help with the investigation.
