Wonder Lake Mother and Daughter Killed in Cook County, Illinois Car Crash

A mother and her 7-year-old daughter are dead following an Illinois multi-vehicle collision in Barrington Hills on Saturday. Five other people, including the woman’s other daughter, were also injured in the Cook County car crash.

The deadly traffic accident occurred on Route 62 at around 9:22 in the morning. Two small cars and a van were involved. According to investigators, a Ford Focus, driven by 30-year-old Barbara Page, crossed the double lane lines, striking a 1997 Nissan Sentra. The Focus then struck a 1996 GMC head-on.

Page was pronounced dead at the crash site. Her two daughters, Madison, 6, and Angelina, 7, were rushed to hospitals. Angelina was later pronounced dead, while Page's younger daughter, Madison is alive but sustained head trauma, chest injuries, and lower abdominal injuries.

There were four passengers riding in the van at the time of the Illinois auto crash. They were all hospitalized for their injuries.

The Cook County medical examiner's Office, Barrington Hills Police Department, and the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team are investigating the deadly Illinois multi-car crash.

Head-On Car Crashes
• About 5,200 people die each year in head-on collisions.
• 1 in 5 deadly non-intersection accidents involve two motor vehicles in a head-on crash.
• 1/3rd of head-on crashes happen when a car is negotiating a curve.
• The remaining head-on collisions that occur involve vehicles that were “going straight.”
• Head-on collisions cause serious injuries and death; the force of impact from these types of auto crashes tend to be stronger because the cars involved are approaching each other from opposite directions.
• These types of collisions can cause serious injuries because the driver and front seat occupant are struck by other vehicle head on.
