Shorewood woman dies in 3-vehicle crash in Minooka

MINOOKA – A Shorewood woman died in a three-vehicle crash that occurred around midnight Thursday near Minooka.

Alexis Danley, 27, of Shorewood, was killed in the crash that involved two passenger cars and a pickup truck, according to the Kendall County Coroner's Office and the sheriff’s police.

Kendall County Coroner Jacquie Purcell said autopsy results are still pending but the most likely cause of death for Danley was blunt force trauma.

Police and first responders were called to the three-vehicle crash at Ridge Road and Khater Drive, Minooka shortly before 12:15 a.m., said Detective Sgt. Mitch Hattan of the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office.

He said one driver was pronounced deceased, another driver was sent to Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center for injuries that were not life threatening and the occupants of another vehicle were treated and released from the scene of the accident.
