PONTOON BEACH, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

The Madison County Coroner's Office has identified the driver killed in Saturday's accident on I-255 as 20-year-old Rebecca Morgan.

According to investigators, Morgan's SUV hit a pick-up truck head on I-255 near the I-270 interchange.

Police said Morgan drove over a slick spot and slid into the grassy center median before hitting a pick-up truck head on.

A male driving the pick-up truck was taken to a hospital in serious condition. Weather and road conditions are suspected as the cause of the crash, but the case continues to be investigated by the Illinois State Police.

Family members have launched a GoFundMe to help pay for Morgan's funeral expenses.
