An off-duty Chicago Police officer was killed when the SUV she was driving crashed on the Chicago Skyway in the South Chicago neighborhood late Friday.
The one-vehicle crash occurred near 87th Street on the skyway about 10:40 p.m. when the 2003 Range Rover Discovery she was driving struck a concrete barrier and rolled over, police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.
Shaunda Bond, 31, of the 4100 block of South Michigan Avenue, was dead at the scene, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
Bond was the sole occupant of the SUV, Mirabelli said.
Bond joined the Chicago Police in December 2009 and worked in the South Chicago District, Mirabelli said.
Bond’s older sister works in the police Major Accidents Investigation Unit and received the phone call when officers called to report the wreck, Mirabelli said.
