A 57-year-old woman was killed Wednesday afternoon in a multi-vehicle crash in South Suburban Oak Forest.

Sara Jo Jenkins was driving a gray 2017 Chevrolet Cobalt that crashed with a 2017 Hyundai Sportage and a 2010 Dodge Avenger about 2:40 p.m. on 159th Street between Cicero and Crawford, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s and Medical Examiner’s offices.

She was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:25 p.m., authorities said. She lived in Robbins.

The 49-year-old woman driving the Hyundai was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t thought to be life-threatening, the Sheriff’s Office said. The driver of the Dodge and five passengers were also taken to hospitals for treatment.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.
