O'FALLON, Ill. (KMOV) -- 70-year-old sisters died Thursday when their car was struck by a construction supply truck in O'Fallon, Illinois.

Marilyn S. Wilkin and Carolyn J. Bromley were in a PT Cruiser that had entered Greenmount Road from Cambridge Boulevard.

Both were pronounced dead on the scene.  The driver of the truck was not hurt.

Police are calling this a tragic accident and no charges will be filed against the driver of the truck.

Many KMOV facebook users commented how this is an extremely dangerous intersection that needs to be addressed by St. Clair County road officials.  Those officials tell News 4 they will look at the intersection to determine if safety improvements are necessary.  They say Greenmount road will be widened in 2012 due to traffic congestion.
