Two people have died in a head-on crash Monday near Peoria. 

21-year-old Zakery Haubrich was traveling westbound on Route 24 toward Quincy, where he'd be spending the holidays at home, said Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll.  She says Haubrich was a student at Bradley University. 

Meanwhile, 55-year-old Peoria resident Rhonda Brooks was traveling eastbound when she drove across the westbound lands, up an embankment and then across the westbound lanes again before colliding with Haubrich's vehicle. 

 Authorities say a maintenance mechanic has died in a central Illinois elevator accident.
