According to the La Salle County Sheriff’s Office, 25-year-old Kylie Lewis of La Salle was going south on Route 251 when she crossed into the northbound lane to pass a car. Lewis crashed head-on into the car of 25-year-old Carlo Ballerine, from La Salle, who was going north with Lauren Dimond of Spring Valley.

The 27-year old Dimond was pronounced dead about an hour after the crash.
