Teen charged in deadly Elk Grove Village crash

A juvenile has been charged with reckless homicide in connection with a crash that killed a woman and left three others injured last month in Elk Grove Village.

On May 28, Elk Grove Police and Fire responded to the intersection of Biesterfield Road and Meacham Road for a report of a two-vehicle crash at 11:22 p.m. 

A 45-year-old mother of five was killed in the crash, according to her family. She was driving a Honda SUV by herself at the time of the crash.

The other car was a Lexus sedan being driven by a juvenile with two other juveniles and an adult. The two vehicles ended up on two different sides of the roadway. All passengers of the Lexus were transported to local hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said the Lexus was traveling northbound and ran a red light, striking the Honda traveling eastbound. 

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed that one person was killed in the crash. 

On Monday, Elk Grove Village Police announced the arrest of the juvenile who was driving the Lexus. They have not been named due to their age.

The juvenile has been charged with reckless homicide, aggravated speeding, disobeying traffic control signal, unlawful concealment of registration and not using headlights.

The case will be heard in the Cook County Juvenile Justice Division.

Several teenagers showed up at the scene of the crash saying they saw a video of the scene on Snapchat and believed their friend was involved.
