CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A Chicago woman is accused of unintentionally causing a crash involving a state trooper that killed her spouse on Interstate 57 Monday in the south suburbs.

Camesia Miller, 46, is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Sindi Miller, Illinois State Police said in a statement.

Sindi Miller, 29, was driving north about 2:30 a.m. on Interstate 57 near 138th Street in a Nissan in front of a trooper when she “lost control” of her vehicle, police said. The trooper’s vehicle hit the Nissan before both hit the left wall.

Sindi Miller was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Autopsy results released Tuesday ruled her death a homicide.

State police said Camesia Miller was sitting in the passenger’s seat of the Nissan, and her actions unintentionally “caused their involvement in a two-vehicle crash involving an Illinois State Police Trooper.”

Camesia Miller was released from a hospital where she was being treated for her injuries and taken to a jail, state police said.

Miller appeared in court Feb. 8 and was release on bond, court records show. She is due back in court Feb. 26.
