A 28-year-old woman was killed after her SUV collided into a semi-trailer truck and rolled over multiple times on Interstate 94 in Libertyville early Friday morning, state police said.

The Illinois State Police, Libertyville Fire Department and Lake Forest Fire Department responded around 2:13 a.m. Friday to Interstate 94 near mile marker 16 in Libertyville for a vehicle crash with injuries.

A 28-year-old woman driving a gray BMW SUV was traveling westbound on Interstate 94 when she lost control of the vehicle and struck a semi-trailer truck.

The impact caused the BMW to roll over several times and the woman, who was not wearing her seatbelt, was ejected from the car, Illinois State Police said. The 28-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Lake County Coroner Dr. Howard Cooper.

Paramedics transported a male passenger from the SUV to a local hospital with minor injuries. Two other men in the SUV refused treatment.
