Authorities have identified 53 year old Terri Schmidt as the victim of Friday’s fatal limo crash on I-90 near Elgin.
Schmidt and five other passengers were on their way to O’Hare Airport from the Madison area, when the limousine carrying them hit a construction barrier, flipping over and catching on fire. Authorities still are unclear as to what caused the limo to strike the barrier, and have not as of yet charged the driver with any citation.
The driver, 20 year old Aaron Nash of Janesville and the five passengers, Keven Schmidt, Lois Corning, Donald Corning, Robert Rosa, and Michael Johnson, were all taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin and St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates. Three of the six were listed in critical condition.
Immediately following the crash, an off-duty firefighter and paramedic, Chris Tierney, had been passing by and immediately began rescuing the passengers and driver. Local firefighters then responded and were able to extricate the remaining passengers.
Schmidt was the co-owner of Dream House Dream Kitchens, and design director of the Delafield location.
