Illinois State police and Rolling Meadows firefighter/paramedics responded about 7:04 PM Tuesday to a report of a crash with ejection on northbound Route 53 south of Kirchoff Road Rolling Meadows, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a woman was ejected from a vehicle in a crash on northbound Route 53. A blue pickup truck was discovered near the median of the southbound lanes with light to moderate damage.
Firefighter/paramedics on the scene reported a victim on the scene was deceased.
One victim was confirmed dead at the scene near the median in the northbound lanes.
Tiffany Ensalaco, age 34, from Rolling Meadows was pronounced dead at 7:22 p.m. by a physician at Northwest Community Hospital after Rolling Meadows firefighter/paramedics communicated with the hospital Tuesday night from the accident scene.
Ensalaco apparently was driving southbound on Route 53 when the pickup truck she was driving crossed all lanes and struck the median. She did not appear to be wearing her seat belt and was ejected into the northbound side of the median, where she was found dead.
Several motorists were passers by immediately after the crash. Northwest Central Dispatch System received multiple 9-1-1 calls reporting a body on Route 53 next to a blue pick up truck.
The location is not far from the scene of a fatal crash where Marcin Minpsuj of Hawthorn Woods was killed when he was changing a tire, and was hit by a vehicle driven by a 23-year-old Buffalo Grove woman. The woman was texting and driving about 7:35 p.m. Monday, August 1, 2011 in the northbound lanes of Route 53 near Kirchoff Road when she drifted into the median shoulder where Marcin Minpsuj was changing a tire. The Buffalo Grove woman was cited for improper lane usage, driving on the shoulder, and operating an electronic device while driving (texting while driving). Marcin Minpsuj died about one month later on September 1, 2011 from crush injuries when he was trapped by the wreckage.
