DeKALB – A 61-year-old woman was killed in a three-vehicle crash on the Interstate 88 DeKalb County-Kane County border Monday night.

Duane Buell, 45, was in the other passenger vehicle and was transported to an area hospital. Kistulinec declined to give the name of the hospital and said she did not know where Buell was from.

The collision, which occurred around 8:15 p.m. Monday, closed all lanes in the area of Shrader and Watson roads. Traffic was redirected for several hours.
