A series of accidents spawned by a patch of wet, slick highway contributed to the death of a Schaumburg woman Saturday morning.

Her husband, also a Schaumburg resident, was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Roise G. Abraham, 28, was driving east on I-80 near the I-65 overpass with his wife, Annley Wilson, 28, when their 2009 Honda Civic spun out of control and slammed into the barrier wall on the right side of the highway. The vehicle, driven by Abraham, came to rest at an awkward angle facing eastbound on the shoulder, according to an Indiana State Police report.

The couple then exited the vehicle. A couple minutes later, a Chevrolet pickup truck also traveling east lost control and struck the Honda Civic, causing both vehicles to spin. Wilson and Abraham were also struck and thrown over the barrier wall. Wilson landed on the shoulder of the adjoining ramp to Central Avenue and died from massive blunt force trauma. Abraham landed in the roadway of the Central Avenue ramp but did not suffer the same degree of injury. He was taken to Northlake Methodist Hospital in Gary, Ind. to be treated.

The driver of the pickup truck, Sam Aprahamian, 38, of Valparaiso, was also taken to Northlake Methodist Hospital for treatment of minor cuts and complaints of pain.
