One person is dead and another is in the hospital after a semi and pickup truck collided head-on Sunday night in Warren County.  

Illinois State Police say Moran Flores was driving a pickup westbound on US Route 34 just before 7:00 Sunday night when they crossed the center line into the oncoming lane. 

The Toyota Tacoma pickup crashed head-on with a semi that was driving eastbound.  

Danny Leroy Scott, the 45-year-old driver of the semi, was transported to OSF Holy Family in Monmouth with minor injures, but police say he later passed away from unknown medical complications.  

Flores, the driver of the pickup, was also transported to OSF Holy Family with non-life threatening injuries.

Illinois State Police say Flores is being charged with Improper Lane Usage.
