UPDATE: Elburn Woman Dies in 1-Car Crash Early Thursday

The 49-year-old woman is found behind the wheel of an SUV around 5 a.m. Thursday at Main Street and Green Road in Blackberry Township, about a mile from her home.

A 49-year-old Elburn woman died early Thursday morning in a one-car crash near the intersection of Main Street and Green Road in unincorporated Blackberry Township.

Sheriff's deputies found Marilyn Gould of the 2-S-200 block of Green Road, Elburn, behind the wheel of a sport utility vehicle when they responded at around 5 a.m. to reports of a crash in the area of Green Road south of Main Street in Blackberry Township.

The crash took place about a mile from Gould's home, Kane County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Patrick Gengler said in a press release issued around 11 a.m.

Gould, the sole occupant, was pronounced deceased at the scene. She had not been wearing a seatbelt.

The initial investigation indicates that a Chevy Traverse SUV was traveling south on Green Road and left the roadway for an unknown reason. The SUV came back onto Green Road, swerved off the road on the west side of Green Road, then crossed again to the east side of Green Road, where it came to a rest near a tree.

There were no witnesses to the crash, and it appears that the crash had occurred at some point overnight, Gengler said.

The crash remains under investigation by sheriff’s detectives and members of the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team.

Dawn...this crash is very close to where Lyn crashed...about a mile away, tops. Her crash was farther North. But it does seem odd, the similarities of both of them leaving the roadway and then crossing over to the other side of the road.

Both crashes causes by unknown factors...I am very sorry for the families loss.

Seems like there should be a bartender held responsible for not cutting her off! MADD
