Wakarusa, IN. – Speeding in wet weather appears to have led to a fatal crash that claimed the life of an Illinois resident. 

The Wakarusa Police received a call early Sunday at 10:45 a.m. to the 66000 block of State Road 19 for an accident.  When they arrived, they found a Chevy Impala that had crashed into a pole, damaging the driver’s side door.

Lejeri L. Ellis-Brackett, a 29-year-old from Sauk Village, Illinois, was the driver and the sole occupant of the vehicle. First responders extricate her from the vehicle, and despite their best efforts, she was pronounced dead at the scene. 

According to the authorities, the primary factors contributing to the crash were excessive speed and wet weather.

The Wakarusa Police Department is still investigating the incident, and anyone with additional information is urged to contact them.
