Champaign Co, IL (July 28, 2023) – On Friday, troopers with the Illinois State Police confirmed the death of an Urbana woman after a multi-vehicle wreck that took place on Illinois Route 130 earlier this week.
The collision occurred near County Road 200 northbound, just north of Villa Grove, on Tuesday. The victim, a 69-year-old woman, was reportedly traveling north on Route 130 in a Maserati Q4 when another vehicle, a Toyota Camry heading east on County Road 220, collided with her vehicle.
Both cars ended up in a ditch next to the roadway. EMTs arrived shortly thereafter and pronounced the first driver deceased.
The Camry’s driver, a 20-year-old woman from Champaign, was issued a citation for running a stop sign and failing to yield the right of way at an intersection.
No other details have been provided, but the ISP’s investigation remains open.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the deceased victim’s family.
