A second person has died as a result of a crash Thursday morning in Burlington Township.

The Kane County sheriff's office announced Friday that Michael Crowley, 54, of DeKalb, died Thursday.


Crowley was a passenger in a Ford Transit van that was struck by a car traveling in the wrong lane on Plank Road near Lawrence Road.

The driver of that car, 27-year-old Rachel Vasquez of Hampshire, also died Thursday. She was driving west, and authorities believe blowing and drifting snow may have caused her to veer into oncoming traffic.
