One woman killed, one injured in 3-car crash on Roscoe Road


One woman is dead and another is injured after a 3-car crash on Roscoe Road.

The Winnebago County Sheriff says that around 10:45 p.m. Friday night, a silver 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe driven by a 34-year-old woman from Roscoe collided with a orange 2014 Dodge Journey driven by a 27-year-old woman, also from Roscoe.

Before emergency personnel arrived on-scene, another car, a black 2018 Chevrolet Trailblazer, driven by a 44-year-old woman from Roscoe, crashed into the Dodge Journey, which was in the middle of the road.

The driver of the Santa Fe was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Dodge Journey had to be extracted from her vehicle and taken to a local hospital for what police are calling “serious injuries.”

The driver of the Trailblazer refused medical treatment. 

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash, and an investigation is on-going.

The identity of the deceased will be released following the notification of her next of kin.
