Urbana Police Lt. Seth King said the crash occurred at the intersection of West Light Street and Oakland Street at 6:49 p.m.

Queen was driving a 1991 Honda Accord westbound on West Light Street at Oakland Street when she drove through the intersection across Oakland Street and her vehicle hit the pole on the west side of Oakland Street. Queen was transported to the hospital by an Urbana Fire Division Medic Unit.

King said police are awaiting the results of Queen’s autopsy.
