The Orland Park Patch is reporting that Ronald Bobowski, 24, of Midlothian, died Sunday night when the Jeep he was driving collided with a vehicle that failed to yield at an intersection.
The accident occurred at 143rd and Harlem Avenue in Orland Park. Authorities with the Cook County Sheriff’s Department state that Bobowski was proceeding westbound on 143rd when his Jeep struck a Chrysler that was trying to turn left at the intersection with Harlem. In the resulting collision, Bobowski apparently lost control of his vehicle as it subsequently struck a traffic signal light pole. He needed to be extricated from his vehicle and he later died at Advocate Christ Medical Center.
Driving the Chrysler was a 51 year old Alsip woman who was not identified in the article written by the Patch. In her vehicle were two passengers, also unidentified. All three were taken to a local hospital. The Chrysler driver was cited for failing to yield while turning left as well as having no proof of insurance.
The accident investigation continues. We will have more information here as it becomes available.
