GILBERTS – The Kane County Coroner's Office has identified the woman who died in a two-vehicle accident on Saturday as Sylvia Franco, 62, of Huntley, according to a news release from the coroner.

Cause of death is pending an autopsy and toxicology, the release said.

Gilberts Police are continuing to investigate the crash, which involved a small BMW and a Dodge minivan. It was reported at 4:36 p.m. at the intersection of Huntley and Kreutzer roads, Lt. Mike Joswick said.

The crash is still being reconstructed, Joswick said.
