A 32-year-old woman was killed in a crash early Saturday in south suburban Ford Heights.

Officers were called at 1:11 a.m. for reports of the crash in the 1300 block of Ellis Avenue in Ford Heights and arrived to find Saffia Hussain inside a Dodge Neon with “extensive damage,” according to statement from the Cook County sheriff’s and medical examiner’s offices.

Hussain, who lived in Sauk Village, was taken to Franciscan Health in Dyer, Indiana, before being transferred to the University of Chicago Medical Center, authorities said. She was pronounced dead nearly 6 hours after the crash.

An autopsy conducted Sunday found Hussain died from blunt force injuries related to a vehicle striking one or more fixed objects, the medical examiner’s office said. Her death was ruled an accident.

The crash remained under investigation on Sunday, according to the sheriff’s office.
