There was a fatal car accident on Tuesday morning, April 30, in unincorporated Mundelein. The accident happened when a vehicle crossed the center line on Gilmer Road, north of Erhart Road, and struck a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction.
According to Lake County Sheriff personnel, Mary Kay Affrunti, 60, of Buffalo Grove was driving the car that crossed the center line. She was taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, where she died of her injuries at 7:17 a.m.
The driver of the other vehicle sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was also taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center.
A third vehicle that swerved to avoid the accident hit a tree, but the driver of this third vehicle was not injured.
