It was a 32-year-old woman who died in Tuesday’s wreck near Utica.
The Solon-Telford Funeral Home in Streator says Chelsea Davis of La Salle, formerly of Streator died as a result of an accident near Utica. State Police say she was westbound on Interstate 80 in an SUV when she hit another SUV and a semi trailer that had slowed for a truck fire further up the road. A Life Flight helicopter was called but Davis died before being transported to a hospital. The other two drivers were okay.
The crash and truck fire backed up westbound traffic on I-80 for several miles.
