A 59-year-old woman was killed and a man was injured in a two-vehicle crash Saturday morning in south suburban Richton Park.

Jackie E. Streeper-Greenwas driving a Nissan Sentra about 8:50 a.m. on Governors Highway when she started making a U-turn at Polk Street, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s and Medical Examiner’s offices. A Mercury Mountaineer then struck the Sentra.

Streeper-Greenwas taken to St. James Hospital in Olympia Fields, where she was pronounced dead at 9:20 a.m., authorities said.

She lived in downstate Trilla, the sheriff’s office said.

The driver of the Mountaineer, a 45-year-old Richton Park man, was taken to a hospital with injuries that appeared to be minor, the sheriff’s office said.

The crash remains under investigation.
