MINOOKA – A Bradley woman was killed after crashing into the rear of a Freightliner semitrailer Friday, Illinois State Police said.

Angela Dominguez, 27, of Bradley was pronounced dead by the Grundy County coroner in a crash that occurred at 12:15 p.m. Friday on eastbound Interstate 80 at Ridge Road, according to a state police news release.

A preliminary investigation showed Dominguez, the driver of a 2005 Chrysler minivan, was traveling behind a Freightliner vehicle driven by Luis Gallo, 23, of Waukegan. Traffic came to a stop and Dominguez crashed into the rear of the Freightliner.

Gallo and a passenger of the Freightliner refused medical treatment. All lanes on I-80 eastbound over Ridge Road were closed and then reopened at 4:35 p.m.

The state police crash reconstruction unit is investigating the crash.
