A woman died after her vehicle collided with an Illinois State Police squad car in the hunt for a Mahomet suspect who had allegedly shot and wounded a police officer.

Police say the squad car was unable to avoid striking the driver's side of Kelley E. Wilson's vehicle, the impact of the collision causing massive damage as it injured both drivers.

Wilson was rushed to Decatur Memorial Hospital, where the 25-year-old mother of two was later pronounced dead at 1:07 a.m. 

Sunday. The 53-year-old trooper was hospitalized, and an update on his condition was not available Sunday night.

Wilson was alone in the vehicle, “At this difficult time, the Illinois State Police extends its sincerest condolences to her family and continues to investigate this crash,” Schmitz the state police director said.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and the ISP trooper.”

The gunbattle in Mahomet that had provoked a wide police response involved a suspect later identified as Dracy C. Pendleton, 35, of Bellflower, who police continued to hunt Sunday and described as “armed and dangerous.”
