Three people were killed and a woman was critically injured in a crash Monday night near the Illinois/Indiana state line on the Far South Side.

About 10:20 p.m., a motorcycle was going east on Indianapolis Avenue when it ran a red light and crashed into a westbound SUV that was turning left onto Avenue B, according to Chicago Police.

Jamie Trickle, a 35-year-old passenger in the SUV, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. She lived in the 1700 block of West North Shore Avenue.

Two people on the motorcycle also pronounced dead at the scene. They were identified as 32-year-old Joshua Lee Gentry and 22-year-old Jereimah Robert Gentry, both Indianapolis residents, according to the medical examiner’s office.

The 28-year-old woman driving the SUV was taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, authorities said.

Fire officials said speed might have played a role in the crash. The police Major Accidents Investigation Unit is handling the case.
