NORTH AURORA, Illinois -- A Des Moines child was killed in a traffic accident in a suburb of Chicago Monday.

Jouseppe Castillo, 6, died after a crash on westbound I-88 in North Aurora Monday evening around 6:55 p.m. The Illinois State Police says Castillo was in an SUV driven by 32-year-old Paula P. Martinez when the vehicle collided with another westbound SUV, causing both vehicles to roll.

Officials believe one of the SUVs was trying to change lanes at the time of the crash but have not determined which one.

Martinez, another child in the vehicle, and the driver of the other SUV were taken to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Castillo was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
