I-75 car-truck crash kills woman

        ARLINGTON HGTS.A 49-year-old woman was killed and her husband critically injured when their 1993 Toyota Camry was struck by a tractor-trailer on southbound Interstate 75 Thursday morning.

        Nancy Delscamp of Germantown, Ohio, was killed. Her husband, Raymond, 47, was flown to University Hospital from the scene at the Galbraith Road exit ramp. He was in critical condition Thursday night.

        The Camry was in a southbound lane at about 9:30 a.m. when the driver lost control, said Steve Barnett, spokesman for the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. The car traveled into the path of the truck, which was also southbound.

        The truck, owned by Freightliner, was driven by Andrew Krug, 25, of Fond du Lac, Wisc. Mr. Krug was not injured.

        The truck driver told officers he tried to stop, but the truck continued into the right side of the Camry.

        As the truck tried to stop, it was struck in the rear by a Toyota Celica with three occupants. They were not injured. Their identities were not immediately known, Mr. Barnett said.

        No alcohol or other drugs were involved, and occupants of all the vehicles were wearing seat belts, he said. After the wreck, Mr. Krug flagged down an Arlington Heights Police officer who was in the area, Mr. Barnett said.

        Arlington Heights Police Chief Chuck Huff said one of his department's police officers had just pulled off the interstate at the Galbraith Road ramp to begin speed enforcement.

        But the accident impact occurred several hundred feet north of the ramp and the officer's presence played no role in the accident, Chief Huff said.
