State police Sgt. Steven Clemente said the crash occurred at 2:46 a.m. He said a witness told police that Esposito lost control of her Jeep SUV in the area where I-294 meets the entrance to the Edens Expressway.

Clemente said Esposito veered off the roadway and up a concrete embankment under Lake-Cook Road, striking underneath the overpass before rolling back down and coming to rest partially on the ramp and a grassy area.

He said the crash remains under investigation.
