Sergio Espinosa, 52, was driving with his sister, Rosalinda Rodriguez, 57, westbound on Oak Creek Parkway at Illinois 47 just after 2:30 p.m. when a truck heading north on Illinois 47 struck the driver’s side of their car. The vehicles came to rest around 200 feet from the intersection which is controlled by a traffic light.
