A west suburban woman was killed and two others were injured in a four-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon near St. Charles.

About 3:45 p.m., a Mitsubishi Outland traveling east on Route 64 stopped behind a vehicle waiting to turn right onto Cibis Road, according to the Kane County sheriff’s office. A Toyota Highlander stopped behind the Mitsubishi.

An eastbound Chevrolet Silverado rear-ended the Toyota, which went into the westbound lane and was struck head-on by a semi tractor, police said.

The driver of the Toyota, 74-year-old Janic Willenborg, was taken to Delnor Hospital in Geneva where she was pronounced dead, police said. Willenborg lived in St. Charles.

The 55-year-old man driving the semi tractor and the 20-year-old woman driving the Mitsubishi were also taken to Delnor Hospital with minor injuries, police said. The 36-year-old man driving the Chevrolet was not injured.

No charges or citations have been issued, and the crash is under investigation.
