Woman killed after collision with utility vehicle
A 21-year-old woman was killed as a result of a collision with her car and a utility truck.
A preliminary investigation showed that the truck accident occurred on Illinois 18 when the car was traveling eastbound down the road and her car went off the right side of the road. The woman then overcorrected and drove in front of a westbound ComEd utility truck.
Accident reconstructionists are still currently investigating the accident at this time. The woman was pronounced dead on the scene and the truck driver was transported to the hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Our deepest condolences are with the friends and family of the victim at this time.
