Woman Badly Hurt in I-55 Rollover
Illinois State Police say the victim, a Shorewood resident, lost control of her vehicle after being cut off by another driver near Romeoville.
A 34-year-old Shorewood woman was extricated from her car Tuesday morning after another driver cut her off on Interstate 55, causing her to lose control and roll into a ditch, Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Martez Malone said.
The accident occurred at about 8:30 a.m. on northbound I-55 between Weber Road and Route 53, near Romeoville, Malone said.
Although he did not know how many times the vehicle may have rolled, the damage was extensive enough to trap the victim inside, he said. The woman, whose identity was not released, was in serious condition and transported to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, which is the closest Level 1 trauma center.
No information was available on the suspect who caused the accident, other than he was driving a tan car, Malone said.
