The coroner’s office has identified a 31-year-old woman who died when she was ejected from an SUV that rolled over multiple times and struck parked cars in Waukegan Sunday.

An autopsy performed Monday on Ceslie Renaud, 31, of Waukegan, showed she died as a result of blunt force injuries, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek.

The Waukegan Police Department and Waukegan Fire Department responded around 2:15 p.m. Sunday to Classic Kia, 425 North Green Bay Road, for a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.

Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Scott Chastain said a white 2002 Ford Explorer had been traveling northbound on Green Bay Road near Brookside Avenue.

A witness reported the occupants appeared to be arguing, according to a police report.

The Ford rolled over multiple times, traveled off the roadway and came to a rest in the car dealership parking lot, Chastain said.

Four parked vehicles in the dealership’s parking lot were damaged.

Renaud was ejected from the SUV and reported to be unconscious and not breathing.

Paramedics performed CPR on the woman and she was transported to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan.

Renaud was pronounced dead in the emergency room upon her arrival at the hospital, Chastain said.

A 50-year-old passenger in the SUV suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.

Green Bay Road was shut down for several hours while officers investigated the crash.

Officers found 8.8 grams of a substance that tested positive for heroin in the vehicle, Chastain said.

The Lake County Coroner’s Office has not released the identity of the victim yet.
