(Gurnee, IL) A woman who died several hours after a weekend crash near Gurnee has been identified. Laura Walley was behind the wheel of a vehicle on southbound Route 41 Saturday afternoon, when she collided with another vehicle that was attempting a left turn onto Stearns School Road. The man in the second vehicle was unhurt, and Walley was transported to the hospital with what appeared to be minor injuries. The 64-year-old woman’s condition, however, deteriorated, and she died about 7 hours after the crash. Coroner’s officials say the cause of death has been listed as a blunt force injury of the neck.
