More than 2 months after sisters were killed in crash with Cook County sheriff's officer, family still waits for answers

  • Relatives of two sisters killed in a crash with a squad car driven by a Cook County sheriff’s police officer in Niles have expressed frustration that investigators have not yet released any conclusive information about what caused the fatal collision.

    “Of course we want to know what happened, and we want to know what caused the accident, how fast the police officer was going,” said a relative, who did not wish to be named. “They say they have the information, but it hasn’t been released yet.”


    An investigation of the crash has been conducted by the North Regional Major Crimes Task Force’s Major Crash Assistant Team since September, and a spokesman for the Niles Police Department said the task force’s report was expected to be turned over to the department this week. As of Wednesday afternoon, the report had not yet been turned over to the department, the spokesman said.

    “I don’t know what to expect,” the relative said. “I’ve never been in a situation like this. I don’t know how long it takes.”
