Woman dies following I-57 crash in Riverdale

(RIVERDALE) A woman hurt in a rollover crash last month on I-57 near south suburban Riverdale has died.

Carmen McDonald, 30, was the front seat passenger in a Ford Explorer that lost control and crashed near 138th Street about 12:50 p.m. on Nov. 22, according to State Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

McDonald, of the 6500 block of South Francisco, was ejected from the vehicle and initially taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, authorities said. She was later placed in hospice care, where she died Friday.

An autopsy found she died of complications of multiple injuries from the crash, and ruled her death an accident, the medical examiner’s office said.

Weather did not appear to be a factor in the crash, and the driver was issued various traffic citations, police said.
