At 10:03 p.m. an Illinois State Police trooper arrived to find a deadly crash instead of a stalled vehicle. The trooper discovered the crash on I-94 East (southbound) near mile marker 23.25 with a wrecked white SUV passenger vehicle facing the wrong way after the impact, and a semi-trailer truck further ahead down the tollway. The Illinois State Police trooper found a female driver unresponsive, not breathing, without a pulse, and trapped in her SUV.




Deerfield-Bannockburn Fire Protection District firefighters and paramedics were dispatched, and the trooper asked for maintenance/HELP vehicles to be dispatched to block Lane 5 for a risk of a secondary crash as traffic passed the crash scene at high speeds on I-94 near Bannockburn and Riverwoods.

Additional state police troopers arrived and the troopers attempted CPR with use of an AED. Troopers were able to extricate the woman just before Deerfield-Bannockburn firefighters and paramedics arrived. The woman was transported to NorthShore Glenbrook Hospital in Glenview, where she was pronounced dead.

The Mercury SUV was struck by a semi-trailer truck traveling southbound on I-94 East (southbound lanes) when the crash occurred.

An extended crash investigation closed Lane 3 and Lane 4 while Lane 1 and Lane 2 were open to traffic. Lane 2 was closed during part of the investigation. All lanes were open about 3:05 a.m.
