A Trenton woman died from injuries suffered in a crash Tuesday night south of Highland.

Police said alcohol appears to have been a factor in the crash that claimed the life of 56-year-old Barbara K. Green.

Illinois State Police Sgt. Brent Beltz said James L. Griesbaum, 32, of Aviston was northbround on Illinois 160 near Highland Road when he went into the southbound lane and crashed head-on into a vehicle driven by Green, who was southbound.

Green was flown by medical helicopter to St. Louis University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Griesbaum was taken by ambulance to the same hospital, where he was listed in serious condition early Wednesday morning.

A passenger in Green's vehicle, 81-year-old Ressie M. Woodcock, was flown to St. Louis University Hospital and was listed in critical condition Wednesday morning.

"Alcohol was a factor in this crash, and the crash remains under investigation," Beltz said. He did not elaborate.

Police said Griesbaum was not wearing a safety belt, and it wasn't clear whether Green and Woodcock were wearing safety belts. Griesbaum was driving a 1994 Ford Ranger, while Green was driving a 2000 Dodge Dakota.

The wreck happened about 5:45 p.m.

Road conditions were a factor in multiple metro-east crashes that Illinois State Police responded to during the evening rush hour Tuesday.

Troopers responded to at least eight other crashes after 3 p.m., including a collision near Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville, and an overturned vehicle on Illinois 4.

Belleville police handled a two-vehicle crash about 7 p.m. on Illinois 15. A driver in one of the vehicles was taken first to a metro-east hospital, and then later flown to a St. Louis-area hospital.
