Elburn woman, 49, killed in early-morning crash
A 49-year-old Elburn woman was found dead Thursday morning after a single-vehicle crash in Blackberry Township, according to the Kane County Sheriff's Office.
Marilyn Gould was killed after her 2001 Chevy Traverse sport utility vehicle left the east side of Green Road south of Main Street, crossed back over Green and came to rest near a tree, the sheriff's department said.
Gould was pronounced dead at the scene about a mile from her home after authorities were called to the area around 5 a.m.
"(The SUV) did not roll. It did hit a tree and a fence," sheriff's Lt. Pat Gengler said. "She wasn't wearing a seat belt. We think that played a major role in her injuries."
Gengler said there were no witnesses to the crash and authorities believe it might have happened overnight. The Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team is investigating. Green Road, south of Main Street, was closed until about 9 a.m. Thursday.
Kane County Coroner Rob Russell said an autopsy is scheduled Friday morning. Toxicology tests will be taken and available in coming months, he said.
