He went into the right ditch, overcorrected, came back onto the road sideways and was struck in the passenger side by a 2007 Chevy Tahoe that was traveling northbound. Gibson , who was not wearing his seatbelt, was thrown into the back seat of his car. Gibson was pronounced dead at the scene by the Macoupin County Coroner.
