Two women from Robinson died in a single-vehicle traffic crash in Champaign County shortly before 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Illinois State Police said.

The women, 55 and 78, were passengers in a 2016 Ford Edge driven by an 81-year-old man, also from Robinson, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said the vehicle was traveling north on Illinois 130 about a quarter of a mile north of Champaign County Road 400 North when it left the roadway, entered the ditch and struck a tree.

The 55-year-old passenger and the driver were taken by ambulance to a local hospital. The driver and 78-year-old passenger were wearing seatbelts, police said.

The crash remains under investigation.
