Three members of a family from Palatine were killed when their car veered into the path of a truck.
It happened Thursday morning near west suburban Sycamore.
A woman, her 19-year-old daughter and 2-year-old grandson died when their car collided head-on with a fertilizer truck.
The truck driver says he honked his horn to warn them.
The victims were on their way to visit a relative at the Dixon prison.
It’s not clear why the driver veered into the truck.
The truck driver was not injured.
