A teenager was killed after apparently losing control of her vehicle early Tuesday in Channahon, the Will County Coroner's office said.

Madison C. Angus, 18, of Channahon, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at 3:25 a.m. Tuesday on Tryon Street about one-quarter mile north of Pawnee Lane.

According to the coroner's office, Angus apparently lost control of her vehicle, which left the roadway and came to rest in a ditch in a wooded area.

Will County Deputy Sheriff Ken Kaupas said there were no other passengers in Angus' vehicle.

He said there is no indication that alcohol played a role in the accident, but said police are awaiting results of toxicology reports.

Kaupas said Angus was not wearing her seatbelt, and that speed appears to be a factor in the fatal crash.

Eileen, I cannot shake this from my brain. I did not know you or your daughter but my heart absolutely breaks for you! I am so sorry for your loss and having children myself cannot even imagine. Know that I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Try to ignore the negative and just feed off the positive things being said about your beautiful daughter. GOD BLESS you and your family during this most difficult time.

Eileen, my daughter also went to school with Madison and we are heartbroken for your family. The following is a powerful verse that I've carried for many years and often re-read during times such as this: Death cannot be and is not the end of life. We transcend death, biologically, through our children; in thought, through the survival of our memory; in influence, by virtue of the continuance of our personality as a force among those who come after us; and, ideally, through our identification with the timeless things of spirit. We contain something independent of the flesh and surviving it: our consciousness and moral capacity, our essential personality … a soul.
