Father and Daughter Die in Chicago Crash


It was a sad day for one family in Lindenhurst, Illinois of Saturday when a daughter and father died in a car crash. Furthermore, the fatal car crash happened near Route 45 and Grand Avenue when a Nissan heading northbound hit a southbound Kia. After the car crash, the Kia struck a pole at the intersection.

Both people inside the Kia, which included a father and daughter both died in the car crash. 50-year-old, Christopher Winiewicz and his 15-year-old daughter Haylie both were killed in the car crash. There was a third person inside the Kia at the time of the crash, and their identity has not been released. The third passenger is currently at a nearby hospital being treated.

Both people inside the Nissan were both transported to a nearby hospital as well. The community is now mourning the loss of Haylie and her father, Christopher. On Monday, Haylie’s school all wore purple to honor her.
