Bettendorf Woman Dies In Locust St. Crash


Davenport police have identified the young woman who was killed in a crash early Friday morning.

It happened just after two o'clock in the morning at the intersection of West Locust Street and Gaines. Police say Kelsey M. Alexander was driving west bound when her 1995 Cadillac crossed the centerline and hit an oncoming Chevy Suburban.

The crash killed her sister, 23-year-old Amanda Beth Alexander of Bettendorf, who was apparently riding in the front seat.

Kelsey Alexander, along with another passenger in her car, 18-year-old Drew Grace, as well as the driver of the Chevy, 24 year old Ouincie Poston of Rock Island, were all taken to the hospital. Their injuries are said to be serious, but not life-threatening.

In a news release, police say "excessive speed and alcohol are thought to be contributing factors to the accident".
