Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating the afternoon death of a 76-year-old Rockford woman who was involved in a single-vehicle crash.

Sunday, May 12, 2024, at approximately 3:10 p.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to Route 173 west of Wells Lane, unincorporated Antioch, for a single-vehicle traffic crash. Lake County Sheriff’s deputies arrived and found the sole occupant of the vehicle unconscious, experiencing labored breathing. The woman was transported via ambulance to an area hospital, where she was pronounced deceased.

Preliminary investigation shows the woman was driving a 2000 Buick Century eastbound on Route 173. As she was driving, her vehicle left the roadway for an unknown reason and struck a tree. The damage to the Buick was not substantial, and it is possible the driver suffered from a medical episode before crashing.

The Lake County Coroner’s Office is scheduling an autopsy.

The incident remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Team.
