A west suburban Hillside woman died in a crash early Sunday on Interstate 294, authorities said.

At 2:22 a.m., Monique Robinson, 28, was driving a 2014 Chevrolet north on I-294 near milepost 13 when she lost control of the vehicle, struck the left wall and stopped in the center lane, according to a statement from Illinois State Police.

A 35-year-old woman driving a 2005 Kia then struck Robinson’s Chevrolet, police said.

Robinson was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where she was pronounced dead at 3:24 a.m., police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Sunday found she died of blunt force injuries suffered in the crash.

The driver of the Kia was not injured, police said.
