An 87-year-old woman died Thursday from injuries suffered in an auto accident on Illinois 394 in Crete.
Agnes DeGroot was involved in a crash Thursday on the highway at East Bemes Road, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Illinois State Police said she was driving west on Bemes when she disobeyed a stop sign at Illinois 394 and collided with a northbound vehicle about 10:20 a.m. Thursday.
DeGroot, of the 23000 block of Plum Valley Drive in Crete, was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where she was pronounced dead at 4:27 p.m., according to the medical examiner’s office.
Police said no one else was injured in the accident and no tickets were written since DeGroot was at fault.
An autopsy is scheduled for Saturday.
