Preliminary investigation shows a 2005 Dodge Neon, driven by an 89-year-old female of Fox Lake, was traveling southbound on Wilson Road. The driver stopped at the stop sign and attempted to make a left turn onto eastbound Route 60. The driver turned in the path of a westbound 2018 Kia Forte driven by a 28-year-old male of Lake in the Hills. There is no stop sign for traffic on Route 60. The driver of the Kia was unable to avoid striking the Dodge, and the front of the Kia struck the driver’s side of the Dodge.

The driver of the Dodge was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with critical injuries. She succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased shortly after arriving at the hospital. The driver of the Kia was treated and released by paramedics at the scene.
