A three-car crash at Milwaukee and Oriole in Niles claimed the life of a Chicago woman on Monday afternoon. The crash involved a Jeep that collided with the victim’s car while turning left onto Milwaukee Avenue when she was also trying to turn left. After being struck by the Jeep, the victim’s car was facing the wrong way on Milwaukee when it was hit head-on by a Ford SUV, which was the cause of her death.
