BARTLETT, Ill. — Two people died Tuesday following a head-on crash in Bartlett.
At around 5:40 p.m., authorities responded to the area of Army Trail Road, just east of Petersdorf Road.
Police believe a black Hyundai was traveling westbound at a high-rate of speed. Witnesses told authorities the driver, Jakub Lulek, 28, of Carol Stream, allegedly passed other vehicles while crossing the center-line and driving into the eastbound lanes.
Police said Lulek eventually struck a black Jeep head-on in the eastbound lane.
The Jeep’s driver, Gloria Suarez Urquiza, 47, of Hanover Park, was pronounced dead after being flown to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital.
Lulek died at the scene.
Police do not believe drugs or alcohol appeared to have played a factor. Army Trail Road was closed from the time of the crash until 11:50 p.m.
