ROSEMONT, Illinois — Authorities have identified the driver killed in a four-vehicle crash on I-294 near O’Hare Airport that left two others injured.
Illinois State Police said a 2009 International truck with semi-trailer failed to reduce speed and rear-ended a 2004 Peterbuilt tractor with a semi-trailer, causing a chain reaction crash, causing the Peterbuilt tractor to crash into a 2004 Chevrolet Venture van, which crashes into a 2016 Freightliner truck tractor with a semi-trailer.
The driver of the International truck was transported to Lutheran General Hospital, where she later died from her injuries. She has been identified as 53-year-old Renee Hodorowicz of Joliet.
The driver of the Peterbuilt and Freightliner were hospitalized with on-life-threatening injuries.
All four lanes of traffic were closed due to the crash before reopening Tuesday morning. The crash continues to be under investigation.
