LOCKPORT TOWNSHIP — A Crest Hill woman died after her car collided with a semi truck in a four-vehicle accident about 4:50 p.m. Thursday, police said.
Judy A. Shilka, 48, died at 3:15 a.m. Friday, the Will County Coroner’s office reported. She died in the intensive care unit of Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center.
State police are investigating the accident, which occurred on northbound Route 53 just south of Renwick Road.
The semi truck, a 2001 Ford Explorer and a 1996 Buick Century were stopped in traffic on Route 53 when a 2011 Kia Sorento driven by Shilka failed to stop and struck the rear of the semi trailer, Illinois State Police said in a news release.
The Kia then slid sideways, striking the Ford Explorer. The impact pushed the Explorer into the rear of the Buick Century, police said.
The others involved in the accident refused medical treatment, police said.
