Urbana man involved in family accident dies


MAYWOOD — Officials say an Urbana man involved in a semi-truck crash outside Chicago has died, bringing the accident’s death toll to five, including the man's wife and daughter.

The Cook County medical examiner says 64-year-old Timothy Osburn died Wednesday evening at a hospital in the Chicago suburb of Maywood. Illinois State Police say a speeding semi-trailer truck changed lanes on July 21 on Interstate 55, causing a chain-reaction accident.

The other victims included Osburn's daughter, 11-year-old Piper Britton, and his wife, 43-year Kimberly K. Britton of Urbana. The other victims were 54-year-old Vicky L. Palacios of Coal City and 48-year-old Urlike P. Blopleh of Channahon.

In a separate accident on the same day a sixth person died on the same interstate when two semi-trailer trucks collided.
