Police ID pedestrian killed in Volo crash as Lake Zurich 22-year-old

VOLO – Lake County authorities on Friday identified the pedestrian who was struck and killed while crossing Route 12 near Volo early Thursday morning.

The victim, 22-year-old Stephanie V. Kostenko of Lake Zurich, was found dead on Route 12 south of Route 120 about 2:30 a.m. Thursday after she was struck by a 2008 Ford Mustang that was traveling south, Lake County Sheriff's Detective Christopher Covelli said.

An autopsy the Lake County Coroner's Office performed Friday revealed that Kostenko died of multiple injuries from the crash, Covelli said.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office's Technical Crash Investigations Unit continues to investigate the crash. Covelli said it's not yet clear why Kostenko was in the road.

Police have not filed any charges in connection with the crash.
