November 25, 2013 — A 29-year-old woman from a village that straddles three Illinois counties died in a traffic crash yesterday morning in Hammond.
Jill Rasco of Minooka died from blunt-force trauma injuries while riding in a car that was struck by another motorist 35-hundred block of Sheffield Avenue. Police say the other driver came across the center line and slammed into the car in which Rasco was riding.
The driver of that car was thrown out by the impact. She and another passenger are being treated at Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn.
