Second Willow Road Crash Victim Dies
A Glenview man died Monday from injuries sustained in a car crash on Willow Road April 15.
A 63-year-old Glenview man died Monday after several days in a coma following a head-on car crash on Willow Road in Northfield April 15.
Soo Hurn Shin, 63, was pronounced dead at 4:05 p.m. Monday at NorthShore University HealthSystem Evanston Hospital, where Northfield Police Chief William Lustig told Patch he had been in a coma. An examination is scheduled for later today, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The other driver involved in the crash, Silvia Garcia-Seguar, 22, of Chicago, died on Friday at Evanston Hospital, a few hours after the accident.
According to Lustig, the crash happened around 8 p.m. Friday evening near a curve in Willow Road. Garcia-Seguar, who was heading eastbound, apparently drifted out of her lane before the two cars collided. Her car spun into a ditch just east of Bracken Road, where she had to be cut out of her vehicle.
Willow Road was closed off between Wagner Road and Old Willow Road late into Friday night. The cause of the accident, speed of the cars and whether anything else contributed to the crash is still under investigation.
