CROWN POINT — A three-car crash on 109th Avenue on Monday morning left one person dead and two others injured.
Jeanelle Fosaugh, 52, of Bourbonnais, Ill., was traveling west on 109th Avenue just before the Interstate 65 interchange when a car traveling east on 109th Avenue crossed the solid yellow double lines into oncoming traffic and struck her vehicle head on, according to Crown Pont Police Chief Pete Land.
Fosaugh’s car rolled over from the impact and wound up in an adjacent field.
The Lake County Coroner’s office pronounced Fosaugh dead at the scene at 6:38 a.m. from blunt force trauma.
The vehicle that struck her car also struck a second westbound vehicle, injuring that motorist as well.
Both the driver who caused the crash and the driver of the third vehicle were taken to Franciscan St. Anthony Health in Crown Point for non-life-threatening injuries.
The Crown Point Police Serious Crash Response Team is investigating the wreck.
“Our crash team will continue with its follow up over the next couple weeks. As part of this we will be looking to calculate vehicle speeds and to define any other contributing factors that may have played a role in this crash,” Land said.
