TAYLOR SPRINGS, Ill. (AP) - Two people have died after the vehicle they were riding in went off a highway and struck a tree in Montgomery County.

Illinois State Police say an 18-year-old woman was driving a vehicle north on Illinois 127 just south of Taylor Springs at about 1:55 a.m. Sunday when the car veered across the south bound lanes and hit a tree.
