Chicago Heights woman dies after crash in Tinley Park

Updated: December 6, 2012 6:18AM



A 70-year-old Chicago Heights woman died early Sunday after an automobile crash in Tinley Park.

Elizabeth A. Forbes, of the 300 block of Glengate Ave. West in Chicago Heights, was involved in the crash along 80th Avenue in Tinley Park, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A Tinley Park police sergeant said the incident involved three separate wrecks and the police response stretched from 163rd Street to 175th Street along 80th Avenue.

No one else was hurt in any of the crashes, and police believe a medical condition may have contributed to the woman’s death.

An autopsy was scheduled for later Sunday, and further details about the incident were not being released Sunday.
