Winfield woman dies in Elmhurst rollover crash

A Winfield woman died Saturday after her car skidded off the road on West Grand Avenue in Elmhurst.

Mary Grant, 75, was driving on Grand Avenue when witnesses say her car began to fishtail and go off the road at midnight in the 500 block of Grand Avenue, according to a police report.

"I understand just prior to this we had some quick falling snow," Elmhurst Deputy Police Chief Jim Kveton said.

Kveton said witnesses indicated Grant was not speeding when the car drove off the road, and the crash was likely weather related, noting there were several crashes that same night on Grand Avenue just east of York Road.

Grant's car drove up on the grass and struck a light pole with a concrete base, then rolled over.

She was transported to Elmhurst Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

No other vehicles were involved, and no one else was injured, Kveton said.
