Regina Medvedovskaya, 45, of Lake Bluff, was killed today after her car lost control on I94 (Illinois Interstate 94) near Deerfield Road and subsequently struck a barrier wall.
Medvedovskaya lost control of her vehicle for an unknown reason, and struck the rear tandem axle of a semi-trailer truck. The collision sent her vehicle across adjoining lanes of traffic and into a wall, according to Illinois State Police.
Lake County Coroner Artis Yancey said Medvedovskaya was pronounced dead around 10:43 a.m. at Highland Park Hospital, about 20 minutes after the car accident. Yancey said Medvedovskaya suffered multiple trauma.
The driver of the semi was unhurt.
