5th person dies after Illinois highway crash

MAYWOOD – Officials said an Urbana man involved in a semi-truck crash outside Chicago has died, bringing the accident’s death toll to five.

The Cook County Medical Examiner says 64-year-old Timothy Osburn died Wednesday evening at a hospital in Maywood. Illinois State Police said a speeding semi-trailer truck changed lanes on July 21 on Interstate 55, causing a chain-reaction accident.

The other victims were 11-year-old Piper Britton and 43-year Kimberly K. Britton of Urbana, 54-year-old Vicky L. Palacios of Coal City and 48-year-old Urlike P. Blopleh of Channahon.

In a separate accident on the same day a sixth person died on the same interstate when two semi-trailer trucks collided.
