The Lake County Coroner's Office has identified a 24-year-old Round Lake Park woman who died Wednesday after a Volo crash.
Susana Ortega died from multiple traumatic injuries as a result of the crash, according to preliminary autopsy results. Toxicology results are still pending, according to a news release from the Lake County Coroner's Office.
Lake County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched about 12:23 p.m. to Route 120 at Ellis Drive in Volo for reports of a crash with injuries, according to a news release from police.
A 55-year-old Gurnee woman was driving an SUV east on Route 120, west of Ellis Drive, when for an unknown reason a Sedan driven by Ortega entered the eastbound lanes of Route 120 and struck the SUV, police said.
Ortega was sent to Advocate Condell Medical Center, where she later died, and an autopsy was performed Thursday morning.
The driver of the SUV was sent to the hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
The Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Team continues to investigate.
