    UPDATE: Charges Filed...

    An Orland Park man, who admitted to drinking, could face charges in a deadly crash near Hickory Hills, said police.

    Heidi Roseen, 51, of Lockport, was killed while driving to her nursing job at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn Sunday morning, said Cook County Sheriff’s spokesman Frank Bilecki.

    Roseen drove her sports utlity vehicle into the intersection at 95th and LaGrange Road when a man driving a pick-up truck ran a red light and T-boned Roseen’s SUV, said the sheriff’s department.

    The mother of three was pronounced dead at Palos Community Hospital about 6:20 a.m, the Sun-Times reports.

    Officers reconstructing the accident estimated the 25-year-old Orland Park man was driving at least 60 mph.

    He’s being questioned at sheriff’s police headquarters in Maywood, said Bilecki. The Cook County state’s attorney’s Felony Review unit is considering charges, the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Roseen leaves behind a husband and three children.
