A woman was killed in a New Year’s Eve crash in west suburban Westchester.

Loretta Pearson, 75, was turning in front of a pick-up truck when the two vehicles collided at 1 p.m. at the intersection of 31st Street and Rosebrook Circle, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office and Westchester police.

She was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where she died, the medical examiner’s office said. Pearson lived in Westchester.

An autopsy released Tuesday found Pearson died from multiple injuries from a pickup truck striking an automobile. Her death was ruled an accident.

The driver and a 10-year-old passenger in the pick-up truck sustained minor injures, police said. Speeding was being investigated as a possible factor in the crash.
