GREENUP, Ill. (WTHI) - Illinois State Police released information to us on a fatal crash overnight.

It happened Sunday afternoon just after 1:00 Illinois time.

Police were called to Illinois Route 130 at Cumberland County Road 500 North. That's just south of Greenup.

Police tell us the driver of a Chevy pickup lost control and crossed into the opposite lane.

That's when it was struck by a Chevy Silverado.

That caused both pickups to crash into a ditch.

The driver and passenger of the first pickup died at the scene. They have been identified as Jessica Shutts, 35, from Greenup, and Anthony Scheiner, 30, from Paris, Illinois.

An investigation continues.
