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.
