COOK COUNTY, Ill. — A woman from Wisconsin is dead after a two vehicle crash on I-294 in Cook County, according to the Illinois State Police.
ISP said their preliminary investigation found that 26-year-old Brandon Rosemeyer — from Monroe, Michigan — was driving south on I-294 near mile marker 30 in lane three around 7:19 a.m. Saturday. Diana Garcia — a 59-year-old woman from Greenville, Wisconsin — was stopped in her vehicle in lane three due to a previous crash.

It is unclear at this time what condition Oscar Garcia is in at the hospital.
