Young mother killed, infant injured in crash near Glenview
Authorities said a 20-year-old Des Plaines woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday morning near Glenview that also injured her 6-month-old child.
The Cook County medical examiner's office said Yamileth Cienfuegos was pronounced dead shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday at Lutheran General Medical Center in Park Ridge.
Cook County sheriff's deputies investigated the crash that occurred at about 7:30 a.m. in the intersection of Central and East River Roads.
Investigators said a box truck driven by a 32-year-old man was heading south on East River Road and attempting to turn left onto Central Road when his vehicle was struck by a northbound car driven by Cienfuegos.
The driver of the box truck and a passenger were treated and released at the scene of the crash, fire officials said Tuesday.
The infant spent the night at the hospital and is expected to be released to a family member, sheriff's officials said.
The crash investigation is ongoing. No charges or citations have been issued.
