A 24-year-old woman was fatally hit by a car late Friday on Interstate 290 in northwest suburban Schaumburg, according to Illinois State police.
Just before 11 p.m. a silver Toyota Prius was westbound on I-290 near Schaumburg Road, when it veered off the road and crashed into a guardrail before coming to a stop in a ditch, state police said.
After crashing, two women in the Prius got out and ran across the westbound lanes of I-290 towards the left shoulder, police said. As they were running, one of the passengers, Gloria Sanchez-Perez of Des Plaines, was struck by a gold Toyota Camry.
Sanchez-Perez was taken to a hospital where she died of her injuries, police said.
State police are investigating.
