A Buffalo Grove woman died Tuesday following an early morning car accident near Mundelein, police said.

Mary Kay Affrunti, 60, suffered fatal injuries in the 6:30 a.m. accident on Gilmer Road north of Erhart Road, the Lake County coroner's office said. The exact cause of death was not released.

Affrunti was driving a white 1999 Mercedes 280 north on Gilmer when she crossed into the southbound lane and collided with a blue 2006 Honda Odyssey, Lake County sheriff's police said.

Additionally, the driver of a gray 2011 Buick Lacrosse that also was headed south swerved to avoid the collision and struck a tree.

Affrunti, who authorities said had been wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. An autopsy isn't planned.

The driver of the Honda also was taken to Condell, police said.
