Awoman was killed and two other people were injured in a crash Monday morning in south suburban Sauk Village.

The crash happened about 9 a.m. when the driver of a 2004 Honda Element headed north on Route 394 lost control of his vehicle at Sauk Trail Road and crashed into a westbound 2009 Hyundai sedan that was stopped at a red light, Illinois State Police said.

The high-speed crash caused the Hyundai to be pushed into a Chevrolet SUV and a Ford pickup in the westbound lanes, state police said.

The driver of the Hyundai, 60-year-old Sandra E. Brooks of Sauk Village, was taken to St. Margaret’s Health in Dyer, Indiana, where she was pronounced dead, police said. A front seat passenger in her vehicle was also taken to St. Margaret’s in critical condition.

The driver of the Honda, 52-year-old Crete man, was taken to St. James Hospital in Chicago Heights with injuries that weren’t believed to be life threatening.

No other injuries were reported.

Westbound lanes of Sauk Trail Road were closed until about 1:25 p.m. for an investigation, police said.

Police initially said alcohol was believed to be a contributing factor to the crash, but it was later determined that the at-fault driver was not under the influence, police said. No charges were filed.
