A 17-year-old was killed in the three-car accident Saturday.

A 17-year-old was killed Saturday and two others were injured in a three-car accident that took place on the ramp from I-355 to I-88. 

A 2006 Mercury was changing lanes on the ramp when it cut off a white Ford, bounced off the trailer of a semi-trailer truck parked on the right shoulder of the ramp and hit a van, according to the Chicago Tribune. The truck was partly in the right lane of the ramp. 

A 17-year-old from was driving the Mercury and was charged with improper lane usage. His name has not been released because he is a juvenile.

Amber Elizabeth Adams, 17, of Park City, was the front seat passenger of the Mercury. Adams was pronounced dead on the scene around 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Illinois State Police told the Tribune

Two more, both passengers in the Mercury, were injured in the accident. At least one was ejected. Neither were believed to have life-threatening injuries, the Trib reported

The crash remains under investigation.

We drove buy the accident scene on Saturday on the way to a family get together. The only people we saw were the state troopers, the semi truck driver and IDOT workers. After seeing that car in pieces and all crumpled up, I am shocked, but glad, to hear that anyone survived at all! It is sad that the girl died.

My wife and I drove by the accident and by the look of the car it seemed like no one survived especially seeing the white sheets covering up the front and back seats. May Amber RIP.
