Alton man killed in two-car crash Monday

   Authorities are identifying an Alton man killed in a crash Monday afternoon as 78 year old Charles Bickett.  

   Madison County Coroner Stephen Nonn says a jeep struck Bickett's Ford Taurus in the driver's side as Bickett attempted to turn left from a restaurant parking lot onto College Avenue in Alton.  

   Bickett was pronounced dead at the scene about 2 p.m. He died of blunt chest trauma.  Nonn says Bickett had been wearing a seat belt.  

   Toxicology test results are still pending and Illinois State Police continue to investigate the crash.

The death of Godfrey, Illinois man is being called a tragic accident.

Madison County Coroner Stephen Nonn says 78 year old Richard Gonzales was killed Tuesday afternoon in the driveway of a relative's home in Alton. Crews were called to the home in the 3300 block of Lincoln about 2:30 p.m.

Nonn says Gonzales had apparently tried to exit his car before putting it in park. When the car started rolling, he tried to get back inside to stop it, but was pinned between the open door and a fence.

Rescue crews tried to resuscitate him at the scene, but Gonzales was pronounced dead at the hospital.

His family says they believe the accident happened while he'd been delivering Valentine Day cards to family members, as was his custom on holidays.
