Illinois State Police are still investigating a motor vehicle crash which killed tow people and seriously injured two others.

According to Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Carlita Joe, a red 2006 Porsche was on the eastbound lanes of the Reagan Tollway (Int. Hwy. 88) when the driver used an emergency vehicle turnaround just next to the Morton Arboretum in Lisle to cross into the westbound lanes about 6:28 p.m. Saturday.

The driver of the Porsche then continued east and hit a 2004 silver Toyota Corolla as it headed west in the second lane from the median, Joe said that one victim was pronounced dead at the scene, while another was taken to Edward Hospital in Naperville, where she was pronounced dead a short time later.

A passenger in the silver Toyota Corolla was taken to Edward and later moved Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. The driver of the Porsche, a 43-year-old man from Naperville, was taken to Good Samaritan with life-threatening injuries, police said.

Two other vehicles were also involved, a Ford Windstar and a Mazda, but no one in those vehicles were injured, police said. Joe said that it is not known if alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash, which remains under investigation.
