The Knox County Sheriff's Department along with the Abingdon Fire Department responded to a single car crash on Wednesday night, May 1, 2013 around 9:00.

Authorities say the 2005 passenger van was traveling northbound at 225 Knox Road 400 E., St. Augustine, Ill., when the driver lost control.

The van veered off onto the east side of the road, began sliding and struck a utility pole. The van then flipped several times and the driver was partially ejected. The van finally came to rest on the driver's side pinning and killing the driver.

Seven other passengers were able to get out of the vehicle. Six were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

The driver was identified as 36-year-old Jennifer M. Avalos of St. Augustine. Officials say she wasn't wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

Officials continue to investigate the incident.
