A man was killed and a woman was injured in a crash Tuesday morning in northwest suburban Des Plaines.

The two-vehicle crash happened at 9:28 a.m. in the 500 block of North River Road, according to Des Plaines police.

Delight Lebel, 77, was driving a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee north on River Road when she tried to turn left into All Saints Cemetery and crashed into a 2002 Mercedes S430 heading south, police said.

Tebakhi, of Mount Prospect, was dead on arrival at the hospital, police said. Lebel remains hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Lebel, of Rosemont, was cited for failure to yield while turning left and is scheduled to appear at the Skokie courthouse on June 12.
