SAUK VILLAGE, Ill. – Police say both the driver of the tractor-trailer and the 28-year-old woman in the silver Toyota sedan were wearing seatbelts. The semi driver walked away and declined medical treatment but nothing could have saved the woman.

She was pinned in what was left of her car, which split in two.  The car wrapped around a tree, then was crushed deeper into it by the big rig.

A vacant house was also hit.  And neighboring occupied homes narrowly missed.

Residents say it’s the third time this has happened.

The preliminary report from state police suggests speed was a factor.  The Toyota was moving fast and  changing lanes.  Police say the car clipped the semi, causing both to spin off the northbound expressway.



IL-394 was shut down in both directions due to the crash.
