Senior Parole Agent Ellane Aimiuwu was killed on February 7, 2010 in a four-car automobile accident on Interstate 80, near Mokena in Will County.
As Agent Aimiuwu was traveling near the 143 mile marker at about 3:00PM, when a westbound sport-utility vehicle went out of control and flipped over the center median wall. That vehicle struck two cars in the eastbound lanes, landing on top of Agent Aimiuwu's department-issued vehicle. Another east bound vehicle then struck the sport-utility vehicle.
Agent Aimiuwu was pronounced dead at the scene from injuries he suffered in the accident.
Senior Parole Agent Aimiuwu had served with the Illinois Department of Corrections for 12 years. He was survived by his two children.
