An Oregon woman was killed in a four-vehicle crash Wednesday evening on I-80 in southwest suburban Joliet.
All four vehicles were heading east on I-80 near Richards Street just after 6 p.m. when a Ford pickup rear-ended a Nissan Versa, then a Ford Fusion and Ford Taurus, according to Illinois State Police.
The driver of the Nissan, 29-year-old Ayla M. Tyson of Wilsonville, Oregon, was taken to Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet, where she was pronounced dead at 6:43 p.m., according to police and the Will County coroner’s office. Her passenger was also hospitalized.
The driver of the Ford and a passenger in the Taurus were also hospitalized, police said. The driver of the Ford was cited for failure to reduce speed, following too closely and not using a seatbelt.
Illinois State Police reconstruction officers are investigating.
