Lanes were reopened several hours after a 28-year-old woman was killed in a crash early Friday on the Tri-State Tollway in north suburban Libertyville.

A gray BMW SUV was heading north at 2:13 a.m. on I-94 near Park Avenue in Libertyville when the driver, Kiara Hill of St. Paul, Minnesota, lost control and the SUV hit a semi and flipped over several times, according to a statement from Illinois State Police.

Hill was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the BMW while it rolled, state police said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

One male passenger from the BMW was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, according to state police. Two other passengers refused medical treatment.

Police said drugs or alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

An autopsy conducted Friday found that Hill died of multiple blunt force injuries caused by the crash, the Lake County coroner’s office said. Toxicology results are pending.

All lanes were reopened by 7:45 a.m., state police said.
