According to friends, the teen was on her way home from her job at Oberweis Dairy at the time of the accident. Her parents reported her missing at around 11 p.m. when she did not arrive home, according to the Herald-News.
Police said while speed appears to have been a factor in the crash, alcohol was not.
A candlelight vigil is planned for 9 p.m. Thursday in the Minooka Central parking lot, 301 Wabena Ave. in Minooka. Those who attend are asked to bring candles.
