A 51-year-old Plainfield woman was killed Thursday afternoon after her minivan crossed into an oncoming lane of traffic in Oswego and was struck by a semi track trailer, said.
Icy, snowy conditions are believed to have contributed to the accident in which Cindy Borgra, 23420 W. Link Lane, was critically injured, police said. Borgra was transported to Rush-Copley Medical Center in Aurora, where she was pronounced dead.
The accident occurred at about 2:30 p.m. on U.S. 30, west of Goodwin Drive. Borgra was driving east on U.S. 30 when her minivan went into the opposite lane and was struck by a truck driven by Joe Clark, 68, of Oswego, Detective Rob Sherwood said.
Clark was also injured in the crash. He was taken to Rush-Copley, where he was treated and released.
The accident forced the closure of U.S. 30 from Route 34 to Fifth Street until about 5 p.m. while police conducted their investigation.
