A Schaumburg, Ill., woman escaped injury in one accident on the Borman Expressway on Saturday morning only to die a few minutes later when another vehicle struck her, according to Indiana State Police.

Annley Wilson, 28, and her husband, Roise G. Abraham, 28, were driving around 10:20 a.m. eastbound on Interstate 94 in the right center lane when their 2009 Honda Civic lost control a mile west of the Central Avenue exit and hit a barrier on the right. The couple got out of the car and were standing near it when a Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Sam Aprahamian, 38, of Valparaiso, also lost control.

The truck hit the Honda, and both Abraham and Wilson were also hit and thrown over the barrier. Wilson landed on the inner shoulder of the ramp leading from the interstate to Central Avenue, and Abraham landed in the roadway of the ramp.

State police say the interstate was mostly wet and had scattered slick spots at the time of the accident.

The Lake County Coroner’s Office said Wilson, who was pronounced dead at the scene, died from blunt force trauma. Abraham and Aprahamian were taken to Methodist Hospitals Northlake campus in Gary with non-life threatening injuries.
